I got my first chickens about 5-6 yrs ago, and have kept them ever since! I started out with 8: 4 buff orphingtons, and 4 barred plymouth rocks. I now have 5: 2 BO, 2 BPRs (from the same batch) and 1 silly RIR roo. I like caring for house plants and playing tabletop roleplaying. I have 1 tortiose, 1 cat, 2 fish, 2 rabbits, and 5 chickens, and a house full of spiderplants! wow, these smileys are COOL!
