Howdy from the Verde Valley and Northern Arizona!

Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by RedRockFarmer, Jan 29, 2014.

  1. Hi everyone! My wife and I live in the Verde Valley in Northern Arizona and we just began our adventure in farming and raising chickens! We have been eating organically(chemical/pesticide) free for quite some time and the obvious next step towards being self sustainable would be to raise and grow our own food. We are starting with a small flock of birds. Our hens consist of a what I think is an Americauna, a Rhode Island Red, a Barred Rock, and our amazing Blue Andalusian Rooster. Here are a few pictures of the flock and our first egg from our Barred Rock! I'm real excited about our new adventure and look forward to sharing pictures and stories with you all. If you have any advice or suggestions for us new farmers, we would really appreciate it! Thanks BYC

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you. You have a beautiful flock! I think that you're mostly correct on the breeds, but your Ameraucana is actually an Easter Egger.
