    Hi everyone, I've had chickens since my neighbor gave me a trio of Belgian d'Uccles almost 20 years ago. They are still going strong, with a few introductions to manage inbreeding. Really cute birds! I've also got a mixed group of heritage breeds, and this year I'm starting a small flock of Speckled Sussex, the nicest birds ever! My husband and I have a small farm in southern Michigan. He's got a young team of oxen, and I have eight (!!!) horses. This a really nice forum, and I look foreward to learning a lot here. Thanks, Mary

    Hi Mary! Wow, you have twenty year old birds?! That's amazing! Do they still lay eggs? Sounds like you've got a fascinating farm out there in MI. Welcome to BYC from Connecticut!
