    Greetings from Northeastern Montana!

    Longtime lurker on the site, but now that it's getting warmer I figured I'd dive in and join up.

    I currently have two Swedish Flower chickens and two Cream Legbars (One rooster and one hen apiece). We made it through our first winter! Although, I will admit one rooster lost his comb in a pretty big way... But he's a hearty fellow and doing fine now. -30 degrees+high wind = a really big learning curve...

    There's 5 Welsummer, 5 Easter Eggers, and 5 Cinnamon Queen hens on their way so our flock is about to take a big leap! We recently finished our house this last year, put in a brand new massive garden that's fenced in for the chickens, and tons more. So here's to year #2 of my boyfriend and I being homesteaders! I literally went from a professional journalist to stay-at-home ranchers girlfriend overnight last year. Haha. Designing websites and starting a couple books in my spare time has been a wonderful way to escape the rat-race and spend more time with the chickens :)

    Ok, my afternoon break is over, now it's back to spring-cleaning the coop. Or the 'Coop d'etat' as I like to call it. Still can't get away from political puns...

    Here's a photo of my tiny herd when we first started a year ago vs today!

    Pretty chickens! Love all the different breeds... having a varied flock is so much better than just having one type. Have fun!
