Hello All! I am so excited to be apart of this group. We (my husband and I) have a small hobby farm in the Shenandoah Valley of VA. We are currently raising Nigerian Dwarf Goats and just bought our very first flock of chickens. Yay!! I am so excited about this small flock of 5 counting our Rooster Solomon (who is a Leghorn/ Buff Orpington cross and he is STUNNING!! Pix soon!). Our hens consist of a Barred Rock, Black Australorp, Buff Orpington and a Maran/Orpington cross. I am in love with all of them as all have such great docile personalities. This morning our family got to hear the wonderful "song from Solomon" as he crowed this morning EARLY - LOL! He is such a sweet Rooster and such a hunk too. I am just over the hill about these chickens and I feel I have a good "starters" to my flock. Well I hope I get to talk to most of yall either here or on another thread and I look forward to learning a TON of things about Chickens.
