Hello, all! My name is Sallie and my young family of five is quickly growing with our ever fun brood of chickens and ducks. This is an adventure that only started a year ago and I've been lurking the site for a few months, searching for tips, tricks, and advice on these lovely birds. Our little farm currently has 30 chickens - ranging from Barred Rocks, Red Sex Links, Rhode Island Reds, Gray Silkies, White Laced Cornishes, Buff Orpingtons, Millie Fluer D'Uccles, a single Australorp, a "silkie" that looks more like a Sultan, and an adorably ugly Millie Naked Neck. We've also recently added ducks - a Pinkie, two Rouens, a Mallard, and two Khaki Campbells. It's been quite fun so far and the kids (three human ones!) are really enjoying watching the birds grow and play! I look forward to sharing stories, pictures, advice, and of course, humorous tales of the chaos!
