I live in Micro North Carolina and just 2 years ago purchased my first Rooster (a Sultan) and 2 chickens. Then I purchased a few more got up to 30. When my husband hired someone to build a coop. Then my peeps came along and I had a variety of ages. My 3 cats started looking at them meaningful. That was quickly halted. My horses stomped one, when she was trying to get the feed he dropped. And I have Endemin Geese and Curly Sebastapol on the pond. Along with Kaki Campbells, Apple Orchard Ducks. I just love all of them.
