    ok.. so..
    my neighbors HATE my horses, then, we got a cow, then, they HAD a cow!! [​IMG]
    so after they called the troopers on us three times, feared for their life from our cow (translate to 6 month old calf, steer), my husband and I joked about the blind rooster commercial on tv..
    lo and behold within a week a friend of mine showed up on our porch with a rooster and two hens..
    well having been chased as a child by chickens, this wasn't exactly what I had in mind, but have grown to love them and add to them. I have no idea what their breeds are, but they lay eggs and my family and I get alot of enjoyment out of them. Now we have decided to incubate and hatch some for the experience and some more hens hopefully. My incubator is warming as we speak and I am off on another chicken adventure (as if becoming a chicken proctologist wasn't enough when my hen became eggbound!!!)
    I'm glad I have found your forums and look forward to all that you can teach me!

    Oh, you'll love hatching eggs! It is so much fun and so neat to see those little babies hatch out of those shells. How does your neighbor like your rooster?!?!

    My theory is this........

    If they are having a cow about farm animals then the NEED to move to the city!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Enjoy your cow and horses and chickens!
    I am gonna be so happy when I live in the country and get to see my cows and sheep and everything that I have and listen not just to my own rooster but to others as well! [​IMG]
