    I'm a reformed city boy who now enjoys life on a 41 acre farm. My wife, daughter and I have a growing flock of 32 chickens (its hard for me to count the 4 silkies as chickens, they're more entertainment), a pig, bees and soon sheep!

    We raised out hens from hatchlings and now they enjoy free ranging on over an acre of pasture.

    I've been lurking here for a long time, now i figured I'd join and contribute. I've learned a lot over the past 7 months.

    right now our large flock is americauna's, wyandottes and buff orpingtons (free range on an acre of pasture)

    our "little girls" are 2 barred rocks, 2 koshens and 1 frizzle (backyard chickens)

    and the babies are a mix of silkies (entertainment chickens) and faverelles (and one other which the name slips my mind). They also reside in our backyard.

    my wife wants a lot more breeds.....

    Chicken Math is real. ;)

    How have you been doing with keeping predators away?
    Not problems yet?
