    Cluckin' happy "HI" from No. MN! [​IMG] Been lurking all summer cuz I thought I'd be called back to work to parts elsewhere {offline} and didn't want to start making connections I couldn't maintain but since the out there job--that helps pay for my chicken and plant addiction--is on lock out I'm still home--and working another outside job--I can't resist getting to chicken chat with all you good folks...at least for awhile before I maybe go to off and on mode.
    So much for my "double life" my real life is 40 acres of warm, fuzzy and feathered--even at -40 when water hoses are snapping...[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My DSO--gorgeous wild eyed man with a farmers' tan, The Ladies and guys: 10 cow calf pairs, 1 heifer, a steer, and 3 bulls (for now); 2 great two-legged kids (DS & DD) all 'finished out"...sorta, a 5 yo grand-daughter (DD's), 8 rabbits and multiplying, too many kitties (re-homing...so as to stop the multiplying), 2 doves, 1 cockatiel, a neurotic collie, lots of green babies, and...of course--roll the crowing, please...

    My dream garden of chickens started! (3 years in but had already had a laying flock.) The Girls and guys: a mixed breeding flock of 46 hens inc. 3 now setting--couldn't say no again to those broken-hearted lil' birdy eyes while gathering the other day-- 3 roos saved over for next breeding season, and 30 lil' ones just integrated into the main flock and doing great! Mix=mostly BO's, barred rocks, New Hamps, RIR, Black Australorps, EE's, & some of last years mixes. 1 BO, maybe 1 mix, and 2 brown leghorn roos coming fall for next breeding season. Goal: continued broody breeding and bird color: more red, gold, buff. Next steps: breeding pens, and Honey wants turkeys. Following season: Improvement of chicken size and egg color(s).
    Oh yeah...and me...I'm Kathy. Just trying to grow a life that's nourishing on all levels.
    Nice to meet/greet you all!

    Welcome from a fellow northern Minnesotan! We're closer to the big Lake but go to Lake of the Woods through Baudette quite often into the Canadian side [​IMG] Sounds like some great projects you have going.
