Hello, all! My husband (henceforth referred to as Rooster Man or Lumberjack Joe if I'm feeling spunky) and I started upon a chicken journey about a year ago. Our flock of 30 chickens is ever growing and we've now added 6 ducklings to that number. All of this, of course, comes after a few months of thinking we knew what we were doing, a bit of elbow grease, and quite a few tears. You see, Miss Darlin' (yes, I picked my own AKA), didn't quite do so well when we got a flock of half ill chicks that passed shortly after we got them home in their new brooder. And Miss Darlin' did even worse when a wild dog knocked out the other half while the Campbell Crew was out grocery shopping. A year and much reading later, we are much more confident in our abilities and our happy chickens now reward us with their happiness .... and eggs of deliciousness. I'm sure you'll see me about, being bubbly and offering bits of my own experience, and asking mountains of questions. I'll also be posting stories (good and bad - you were warned) and pictures of the Tiny Farm here. Love and Fluff, Miss Darlin'
