There will be ameraucana bantams, gold laced cochin bantam, polish bantams and standard sized frizzles and silkies. just a few of each , I am planning of ending up wwith about 8-10 females. I cant keep any roosters as we live in the city.(on a huge -huge lot)
    I will fence of a piece of backyard for my garden and the chickens. For the coop i will use a part of my garage. I just a small door through the side and build the coop there.

    I got different morphs such as pied, granite, pastel albinos and two normal girls from africa for breeding stock(pythons for non snake owners). The gator snapper is from when we lived in Florida, he likes to eat the mice pinks that wont make it. He is still small and can be handeled (he has bitten me only twice)

    We got just a regular old ball python.I'm not too familiar with the different breeds.Slither was a rescue,my hubby got from a guy he worked with.He got it to impress the ladies [​IMG] never could get it to eat,but we've had him(or her?) for a yr.My hubby is going to build an enclosure for him during the warmer months.
    I bet that bite hurt.My gosh we had a big girl show up to lay eggs in the garden.She was big & mean,the chickens we very upset over her showing up.

    he is only 4 in shell length now . the bite did hurt but he didnt draw blood. Ya shouldnt hand feed a snapper- i found it out the hard way. you should be lucky that she didnt eat your chickens. friend of mine feeds hers whole chickens.
