Hi! We've had chickens and ducks for about 5 years now. We raise them primarily for the eggs, although this year my daughters will be taking a couple to our county fair for 4H showmanship. We have production reds, barred rocks, black sex links, Easter eggers, Ameracaunas, and magpie ducks. Our chickens free range in our pasture and come running whenever we come outside. Super funny to watch them run for treats! ;-D love our feathered friends!
