Hello all. My dad had chickens, either professionally or personally, for all but 2 of my growing up years. And now, I'm in. I was going to start slow with 10 birds and see how things go, but ended up with 36. I have some New Hampshire Reds, a bunch of ISA browns, some Americaunas, and some crosses with Marans. I also have a few Orpingtons (wide bottoms!) and just got a quartet of Aconas a few weeks ago. I actually decided it was time to make the leap, because I couldn't find anyone who had pastured eggs for sale. So, now I will!
