    Hi all,
    I have recently jumped into the world of chickens! I grew up with them for many years but never liked them, now I'm a new chicky mommy :) I currently have 14-15 laying hens (1 is a buff orpington from a straight run, hoping for a hen) 4 meat chicks, and 6 bantams. Oh, and 2 ducks!
    I am excited to be here!

    For someone that thought they didn't like chickens, you sure ended up with a bunch of them, lol.

    Hope you're having fun, thanks for joining us!
