Hi, I'm Jerrica. I'm from south eastern Louisiana along the Gulf Coast. I got into chickens about a year go.I currently have a mixed flock of around 20 birds. Most are Rhode Island Reds or Red Stars. I have 2 black Australorp hens. I lost my black rooster to old age. My current rooster is an egotistical RIR. I have some buff orpington, RIR, and americauna mixed hens and a few young roosters that will be culled from the flock when they're older. I have 24.5 acres with horses, ducks, geese, goats, cats, dogs, and a few other animals. I've used this site to find answers about my chickens before and decided to join.
