I'm a new member and not used to bulletin boards. We've had chickens for about 4 yrs. Mainly for the eggs to eat. We started breeding about a year ago. We have over a hundred chickens. Australian Light Sussex,Buff Orpingtons,Lavender Orpingtons, and Black Orpingtons. Next week we will be adding Black Orpington Bantams and Buff Orpington Bantams. If you haven't noticed we like Orpingtons. I'm a disable Veteran. Working around the farm gives me the exercise I need.
