    I'm so excited to have found this site. Only a few months into creating a backyard farm. My current chicken status is ten Easter Egger hens and one Silkie rooster. We also have 3 pygmy goats and an alpine with her baby girl oh and Newton, our in house mini pig.
    I say current status because we have had a few tragedies. One of which led me here thru a Google search. So glad of that! We also have 3 dogs and 3 monsters...children, sons. So it's a full house! Looking forward to this community, thanks for having me!
