    Good Morning! My husband and I moved onto a farm about 1 year ago. Shortly after moving we found ourselves to be the owner of a lost pig. Then,friends of ours gave us 4 Leghorn chickens.
    This didnt end well for the chickens- I'm sad to report. Our dogs being city slickers-thought they might be tasty. We have since been working with them and have made some good progress.

    We now have: 3 pigs (l potbelly and 2 Kune Kune's who are 3 months old.)
    4 Hens-2 leghorns,1 Barred Rock, and 1 gold laced Wyandotte.

    And, because Chicken Math is real, we now have 10 4 week old chicks in our Kitchen!!!

    Most of my questions are going to be about these new ones. We purchased 3 Barred Rocks (Pullets) and 3 straight run Ameraucana's and 2 each straight run New Hampshire and Rhode Island Reds.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! That's a lively pic you have posted of your chicks there, very cute! It sounds like your flock is growing well. They tend to grow rather unexpectedly!! Wishing you the very best of luck for the future and enjoy BYC :frow
