    Hey there! My name is Kelly, I got my first chickens last April(2012) and have fallen in love and become addicted. I grew up in town, but moved to a farm with my boyfriend at age 18. Before I turned 21 I had convinced him we should get chickens. We converted an old shed and moved our first four girls in. It started with four red stars. Now we have ...

    4 red stars (hens)
    3 americaunas (hens)
    4 brown leghorns (3 hens, 1 roo)
    3 speckled Sussex (2 hens, 1 roo)
    2 buff orphingtons (1 hen, 1 roo)
    3 cuckoo marans, or so we were told by TSC (2 hens, 1 roo)
    2 Sussex Leghorn red cross (1 hen, 1 roo)
    2 Sussex Leghorn americauna cross (roos)
    9 old English game bantams (2 hens, 3 roos, 4 chicks)
    And the newest chicken addition
    4 seramas (3 hens, 1 roo)

    We also have ...
    6 butterscotch call duck (3 hens, 3 drakes)
    2 mixed call ducks (drakes)
    6 Rouen ducks (4 hens, 2 drakes)
    4 pekin ducks (2 hens, 1 Drake, 1 .. I don't know. No sex feather, but acts like a male)
    3 Rouen mix ducklings (1 hen, 2 drakes)
    3 Nigerian dwarf goats! (2 does, 1 Buck) :)

    Yup. A lot for a year and a half... LOL
    Anyway. Hello and I can't wait to start sharing!
