    We have been married for over 28 years and live on a small farm in Southern Maryland. We have raised 4 human children - 2 sons (19 and 25) and 2 daughters (19 and 24), pheasants, turkeys. We are new to chickens - our 24 girls are just over 18 weeks old (9 White Leghorns, 6 Rhode Island Reds, 4 Black Minorcas, and 5 Buff Minorcas.) The Leghorns started laying a few weeks ago - only a few will lay their eggs in the coop right now though!! Yesterday I found 19 eggs in the hay stall in the barn! Everyday there is an Easter Egg Hunt! Yikes! [​IMG] We also have 2 horses, 2 barn cats, 2 pygmy goats, 1 turkey, numerous Bobwhite Quail and 1 good dog - Max our beloved Westie. Every day is an adventure at Fairwinds Farm!! We look forward to learning from you all!
