    I am semi-new (3 years) to the "chicken world" but by the Spring, plan on getting MORE CHICKENS!

    I was wondering, all of you who are from Indiana, what kinds of chickens do you have? Or heck , animals for that matter!

    I have Barred Rock, Rhode Island Reds, Buff Orpingtons, Americaunas, and a pair of Mille Fleur. I also have Jacob sheep and dogs and cats...

    By the Spring, I hope to get some Nankin and/ or Cubalaya, maybe more! I like Heritage Breeds...

    So how about you all? [​IMG]
