We have 5 hens and one new baby rooster but the girls hate him. Poor baby. He is only a month old. Found this place by Google (thank God) My husband and I have 2 does and 1 weather Nubian goats, the 6 chickens and 2 cats and one dog. When the kids left home so did we to start our farm. We are loving life.
