  1. Hi everyone! What a nice website to add to my favourites. I was looking for a resource like this!

    Let me introduce myself and my animals:
    My name is Daphne, I'm 29 and I grew up in the city. We moved to the country in 2008 so we could keep our horses in our backyard ;) . We own 2 American Quarter Horses (Pride, 15, sorrel, mare, and the mother of our 3 other horses and Biscuit ,1.5 ,sorrel, our amazing colt) and 2 American Paint Horses (Ayla, 7, chestnut tobiano, mare and Faith, 4, gold champagne tobiano, mare).
    We also have 2 dogs, German Shepherds Clinton and Zara.

    Moving here meant we could finally buy ourselves some chickens!
    We started with 3 hens and one rooster, but now we have 3 big coops with a variety of chickens.

    Coop 1; rooster Humphrey (100% ? but a true gentleman) and his 6 girls (5 hens are 50% wyandotte,50% ? and one pullet is 50% barnevelder, 50% ?)
    Coop 2; rooster Dirk (50% wyandotte, 50% ?) and his 4 ladies (all 100% Lakenvelder chickens)
    Coop 3; rooster Humberto (50% Lakenvelder chicken, 25% wyandotte, 25%?) and his 2 ladies (one 50% Lakenvelder chicken, 25%, 25%? and one 100%?)

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
