    Hi there... I am not all that new to the forum but have never posted before. I love this site and have learned a lot from the other members on here. I am relatively new to chickens... just got my first chicks in March and another batch in May and have found the info on here excellent. I would love to network with other chicken owners here in Nova Scotia so feel free to add me to your buddy list if you would like.

    We have 29 Heritage chickens... 19 hens and 10 roos... they are amazing!

    Hope to get to know some of the members on here over the next while and especially some of my "chicken neighbours" here in Nova Scotia. [​IMG]

    We have French Copper Marans ( hen & roo)... Cuckoo Marans (2 roos)... Anconas (4 roos & 4 hens)... Chanteclear (1 hen)... Wyandott (2 roos & 3 hen)... Partridge Chanteclear (4 hens)... Barn Mix ( 1 "rumpless" roo and 2 hens)... Ameracauna ( 4 hens) and one German named one that I am not sure of but she is sweet!

    They are all under a year old and we are over run by roos.... guess this wasn't the year to start a flock.... hahahaha. We are in the process of trying to re-home most of the roos as we have close neighbours and we don't want them to get ticked with us.

    I just love our chickens though.... they are so cool to spend time with and it is usually my Sat morning thing to take my coffee and "be one with the chickens" for a few hours.

    PS.... if you know of anyone looking for some sweet roosters, please let me know!
