I have been raising chickens since I was a little girl in Washington State. My mom has helped me from the start. She raised chickens when she was a little girl. Now i have 6 Maran hens, 10 Welsummer pullets, 3 Welsummer cockerels(which I'm going to give to a friend),1 Sebright hen, 1 Blue Orphington hen, 1 Americana bantum mix hen, 1 bantum splash cochin, 1 bantam white frizzle cochin, 1 sexlink rooster,and 1 standard black cochin rooster. I have many pens as you can imagine. I love them all!
