I live in Texas. I have been raising chickens for about 1 1/2 years. I am a S.A.H.M. of 7 along with over 2 dozen chickens, thanks to the very welcome addition of babies that we have had in the past few days. I am not sure what breed every one of my chickens is, but I do know that I have RIR, Buff Orphs, a leghorn, and am thinking Amerecauna or some kind of bantam. We live on a lake and also have indian runner ducks. I would love to get some peckin ducks, but I think I can wait until next spring to ensure they survive a harsh tx winter.
