Hello, everyone!!

I'm Sara. I'm new to these parts! I live in the Cooperstown, NY area -- any others near my way?


Just entered the fascinating world of chickens. My husband & I own a little organic farm. We mainly center around raising/selling cows... we're looking to hopefully have our own dairy farm some day. I also own two horses. And we're now starting to raise chickens. We'll be selling organic eggs once we get our flock up & going.

I came across this site while wanting to learn more about raising chickens. I also will be posting a topic sooner or later to figure out what kind of chickens we currently have. We basically rescued them. I'm hoping to sooner or later have some Plymouth Rocks, Jersey Giants & Dominiques - we'll be ordering some of these in the spring. We starting small right now until we get our coop up & finished.

Anyhoo... it's nice to be a part of this forum & I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you!

Bluebirdfarm: We have a little bit of everything. I like Jerseys, Brown Swiss & Brahman -- they're so cute! Most of ours are Holsteins & Jerseys (crosses too). Every now & then we'll get others... we've had Herefords, Guernseys, Brown Swiss, Angus, Ayrshires & Belted Galloways. I want to some day own some Brahman (and actually KEEP them instead of selling them) - I think they're adorable w/those big ears!

Congrats to you on saving that cow!
