    Hey all : ]

    My name is Tricia and I grew up doing chickens, dairy goats and cows, and beef goats. I did it for about a month and then we sold the animals : [ Now being 19 almost 20y/o, I am getting back into the swing of things!! I have 3 polish, 7 silkies, 4 standard cochin (2 chicks that were just turned out in the coop and then a roo and hen), about 20 bantam cochins, 6 ameracauna chicks, 3 mallards and 2 pekings just over the course of the last month and collecting. I also have 1 egg in the incubator. I had 3, one was infertile, other one died. Hatch date for the one egg is monday!! I am trying to start a breeding program considering I do want to sell chicks and chickens. Hopefully this forum will help me find everything I need!! : ]

    Thanks!!
    Tricia : ]
