    See the list in my signature! [​IMG] I like having a variety. There are so many cool chicken breeds, I can't be limited to just a few!

    The breeds I breed, though, and sort of specialize in are serama and old english game bantam. Hoping to try and breed my pair of bantam sumatra in the spring as well.

    WOAHHHH!!!!!!! HOW MANY IS THAT IN ALL????

    Here goes:
    Coop and Run #1-
    BR, White Leghorn, EE, and BSL all pullets. soon to add a bantam white silkie, SLW, and rooster who has permanetley lost his crow lol

    Coop and Run #2:
    Deleware, Dark Brahma, RIR, Blue Ameraucana

    Then I have my third coop, the "nursery coop and run", where I house sick/injured and broody chickens. but that is currently empty.

    then i have my garage coop, which consists of my whole garage (unused), where I house chicks I am selling, chickens I am doing projects with, and chickens i am temporarily keeping for other people. it's so fun to go in that coop because it's just a small little pen in the middle of the garage with straw bedding, food and water. there is no roof, so the chickens just fly around the garage all day and sleep on the shelves, ladders, christmas storage items, and bike handles LOL. there is one big window and many lamps that are on. i just hit a button to let the chickens out, which is the highlight of that coop! unfortunetly this coop doesn't have a run, but since the nursery coop is empty I let them go in the nursery coop run, and free range a lot.

    oh yeah, and then i have my home made incubator which is now empty but soon to have a lot of eggs in it, and my cardboard box brooder which will have 16 chicks in it by the end of this month. [​IMG]
