    Hi peeps.

    I've browsed this site many times over the past couple years. Finally joining. Thanks for all the great advice! Never thought I'd be a chicken fanatic! But, here I am.


    We (me, hubby, 3 girls in grade school) are not totally new to chickens. Started with a few hens a couple years ago and recently branched out to some new breeds. 



    We have 5 NH Red hens, 5 Silver Wyandotte hens, 4 Black Sumatras (2 hens and 2 roos), and 4 Easter Eggers (2 hens and 2 roos).

    We also have 6 Bourbon Red turkeys (4 hens and 2 toms).
 Plus, 2 yellow labs (brother and sister) and 6 Soay Sheep (3 ewes, 2 rams and 1 wether). Oh, and at the moment, we have one Suffolk/HampX market lamb for 4H.

    Oh! I can't leave out that we have a bunch of eggs in the 'bator. First hatch ever. Two days and counting!

    See you around.

    Thanks everyone! Loving this site. BTW, our first hatch went pretty good. Had 11 of 15 make it. They're running around the brooder cute as all get out.
