Hey eveybody! I just joined the backyardchickens forum and thought I’d introduce myself. I’m from a city family who owns chickens! We are fairly new to this as we have been caring for them for almost 1 year. We have 6 of them currently. Here’s some info on them...
Hazel-Barred Plymouth Rock-Hen-11mo
Alice-Buff Orpington-Hen-8mo
Darla-Lavender Ameraucana-8mo
Sylvie-Silver Laced Wyandotte-Pullet-3wk
So those are our chickens! We love them dearly. They are more of pets than livestock. Just with the added bonus of eggs. They live in a fenced off yard that is 1/4 of an acre. They are also fed the organic type of food. As well as chickens, we also have 1 dog and 4 cats. Here they are...
Lucy-Jack Russell Terrier Corgi mix-5yrs
Holly-DSH brown tabby-4yrs
Alex-Siamese Maine coon mix-4yrs
Theo-DMH orange tabby-10mo
Luna-DSH black-7mo
I am a huge animal lover and would love to hear about anyone else’s pets! Pictures are fun to look at too! Here are some I have...
G’Day from down under MysticalHen :frow Welcome!
