I'm Samantha (Sam, please) and I'm just getting back into chicken keeping.. Haven't had them since I was a teenager! Very excited, and I love our *mixed bouquet* of 7 breeds (two Barred rocks, gold laced Wyandotte, silver spangled Hamburg, Easter egger, buff Chantecler, buff brahma, and a Partridge rock). My husband Michael and I have three dogs, too. Kaiju the Akita girl, Voodoo the Llewellyn setter, and Henry the Jack Russell/Beagle mix. I'll try adding photos of everyone. So glad to have such a wealth of knowledge available to a semi newbie.
