New member.. I don't know why it has taken me so long to join, but I finally did it! My name is Jorlyn, I have a hobby farm consisting of lots of chickens, 4 ducks, 3 goats, 3 horses, 4 cats (plus 1 for the neighbors cat) & 3 dogs. Most importantly I am a mother of 4! I started a few years ago with red sex links from tractor supply just for laying eggs. And then I decided I wanted some different colors.. then I started researching breeds & fell in love with so many breeds. Now I have multiple coops, I sell, hatch & raise locally & just recently got NPIP certified to ship. Though chickens aren't new to me. My mother & grandparents have always had chickens. They just weren't interested in breeds or preservation like I am. The breeds I am currently working with consist of GFF Cream Crested Legbars, GFF newest line of FBCM & also a few from Bev Davis/Jean Wade, Speckled Sussex, Red Partridge Welsummer, Blue Amerucauna, Lavender Orpingtons, Golden Buff Orpington, Cochins, & 1 possible Minorca (?).. I would like to expand my flock to include Lavender Amerucauna & Jubilee Orpingtons soon. Look forward to learning & sharing with the BYC community!
