    I recently moved out of town on 5 acres and purchased 6 chicks from the local feed store. I lived in town my whole life, so this was very exciting for my boys and I.

    We watched them grow and couldn't wait until they started laying eggs. We purchased 2 Ameraucanas, 2 Wyndottes, 1 RIR, and 1 Orpington. Before we knew it one of our ladies started crowing! Ooops! Now we have a Mr. Ameraucana.

    It's been about 1 year, and now we have 11 eggs in the Little Farm 9300 incubator. I can't wait to see how these Easter Eggers are going to turn out (or if they will turn out).

    I'm excited to learn more and get support from backyardchickens.com!
