Last yr. I started with 25 Buff Orpingtons still have them my children wanted some ducks now have 8 ducklings. My wife wanted something with color and she picked out 3 Bantams and 4 Black Cochins. I ordered 15 more buff orpingtons and I am waiting for 30 pheasants to come in. My son and I went to TSC to get a choker for are dog and feed and will he wanted to go halfs in on 25 more laying chickens Golden Comets. The rooster I have know my daughter and wife hate so I am keeping him. He is nice to me. So that is a little about me. I live in Michigan.
