I always love reading your forums so thought it was time to join. We bought a place in the country about 4 years ago and bought chickens and ducks. It has been a learn as you go process for me. We have quite the variety. Easter eggers, australorps, barred rock, marans,pioneer and this year I brought home brahma and polish chicks. Sometimes I curse myself and wonder why I can't just say no but we love the beautiful color variety of the eggs we collect.
