    Hi Emma!

    Welcome to BYC and glad to meet ya! I've been raising chickens for about three years, and this year I added two little baby turkeys to the mix. I also have various breeds. I think variety is alot of fun. My favorite breed though, is the Barred Rock.

    I also have two dogs. One is an Irish Terrier, named Fionna, and the other is a Pomeranian named Cosmo.

    Anyhow, glad you joined us!

    Sharon (I'm old--47! LOL)

    thank you and I also like the PLymouth Rocks I have Barred, white, a silver penciled, partridge and I am looking for buff and blue. My favorit kind of chickens are slikies, Sicilian buttercups, and Polish. I had a pair of good buttercups but a fox got my rooster and my slikie rooster isn't doing his job. only 5 eggs out of 24 were any good.
