    I've been around chickens and other farm animals all my life. I was born in Texas, moved to Louisiana when I was 16 and then Alaska when I was 45. I started with 15 each Buff Orpingtons and Black Austrolarp about 6 years ago. Now I have a mixed flock of about 20 hens, 2 roosters and 7 little peeps. We had about an inch of snow this morning but the girls didn't seem to notice. They have the run of 3 acres and a nice insulated chicken house. I have an 85 pound Newfie/Lab mix that protects them from the eagles and hawks. They sound the alarm and she goes running and doesn't leave them until the danger is passed. :) Our chickens are family. Even on snowy winter days my husband and I set in the chicken house and visit. :)
