I'm Kim Yates, and my husband is Michael. We have two sons, Lil Mike (who is grown & out on his own) and Patrick (who is just about grown & still at home) . Our family has had chickens for about 8 months now, and I have found so much helpful information on this site, that I decided I ought to join. We have a pair of white bantam Cochins (Frankie & Annette), 1 blue standard Cochin hen (Pengen), 2 Buff Orpington hens (Freida & Francy), a pair of Silver Laced Wyndottes (Roxy Roo & Rosie), 3 Ameraucanas (Cleo, Farah, & Moe), and 3 Easter Eggers (Amelia, Audrey, & Sissybird). We also have a black Netherland Dwarf bunny (Charlie), a pair of grey cats (Beary & Earnestine) & 1 Golden Hound (Bucky).
