I figure it's time I introduce myself. I have 22 chickens, my barnyard assortment of Buff orphingtons, Jersey giants, Rhode Island Reds, Dominiques, Barred Rocks Wellsummers , Cuckoo Marans and Polish Laced. I also have 5 Black French copper marans on lock down in the incubator, and More Cuckoo marans, Wellsummers, Polish laced and two Pekin Ducks coming in 3 days from Ideal Poultry! I used to be very involved with my chickens, then life happened, about 7 years ago I chose to take care of my beloved mom here in our home until she passed away at 92 in January. I found I had nothing but time on my hands (I'm retired) my horses are all in late 20s and 30s now, so decided to transform a foaling stall and viewing room here near the house into coops. One is done, and working on the other 3. I'm learning things here even years with chickens never taught me, Thank you!
