    Hi all! My name is Tera. I got my first group of chickens in March and have loved every minute of them! I have 18 chickens, 5 Buff Orpingtons, 2 Speckled Sussex, 2 White Sussex, 3 Aracaunas, 3 Silver Laced Wyandotte's, and 3 Bantums (not 100% sure of their breeds). I bought all of them as pullets but still ended up with 2 roosters. One is a Buff Orpington and the other is an Aracauna. My husband farms part time with his family and works a full time job and I get to stay home with our two girls ages 2 and 4. I love the farm life!! :)

    Hi Tera, nice to meet you. If you'd like to find out what your bantam breeds are - post photos at "what breed or gender is this." We would love to see photos as well.
