I've visited this forum many times and finally decided to join in the fun. My husband and I reside on 20+ acres in the woods of middle Tennessee. We have 3 hens: Peep, a Dominique; IttyBitty and BigBird, both Buff Orpingtons. We also have 4 dogs: Boo (Lab); Raven (Rottie mix); Rock (GSD); and Izzy (Pittbull); two cats: Bedford Forrest and GracieLou; and two horses: Fancy and MoMo. We had another Dominique, Daisy, but she fell victim to an opossum (we got it the next night!). Looking to expand and learn...I never thought I could be so enthralled with chickens, but they are truly a joy.
