Found this forum and thought what the heck I would sign up... I love chickens always have! Currently I have 4 laying hens named, RePECKa, Scrambled (Araucana's), HENrietta and PECKadilly (Black Australorp's). My great grandma brought 4H to Goshin County and started a club eventually giving the kids of LaGrange a chance to buy, raise, and show their chickens at the county fair. Being raised around chickens my Grandma was a huge admirer of chickens encouraged us grandkids to pick specific breeds, raise them and figure out how to make money from them (selling chicks, eggs, pest control or meat). I have raised chickens for the last 15 years I like to keep a few around to keep down the bugs, entertain me, eat my leftovers, supply the family and friends with a few eggs. Howdy!
