There were grown chickens in the yard for a few years and along came Katrina for a visit; so off to North Louisiana we all go yes the chicken to and there is where they found nice families to take them in for a long life. Now starting over with two day old Gold Laced Wyandotte, Ameraucana Bantams fifteen of each since that was the smallest order you can get through the mail. Five Rhode Island Reds because they had them at the feed store and I like them. Was not prepared for this many chicks and never having babies started surfing on Google and found you guys started reading and couldn't stop so ten hours and one swim ( love the water) later here I am. There are eight Cat , three Dogs and one Macaw who are the actually owner of everything and everyone on this small urban farm just outside of New Orleans.
