Hello! I am new to BYC and love this place! I have a geriatric coope - 2 mixed hens, 2 brown wyandotte hens, 2 broad rock hens (1 still lays) and a broad rock Roo. I love my chickens and dont mind that they dont lays. With 3 acres its nice to have the bug eaters. I also have 5 chicks they are 5 weeks old they are silkie and d'uccle mixes. I hope when they get bigger they well lay and I can enjoy as many fresh eggs as I want! This is my first "batch" of young chicks, and Roo. My husband started us out with all hens and after a few years (5+) I wanted a Rooster and for nature to take place (BABIES!!!) So this is new to both of us, I got the chicks at 4 weeks old so we dont not need heat lamps right now. But I cant wait to get my hands in the "process" So back to the thread title... What is a Farm? I have a few =) chickens, a pot belly pig and a garden all on 3 acres. Everyone that knows about me says I live on a farm, but everyone that come to my house says its just country. Thats how cul-de-sac farm came about. I live in a cul-de-sac, off a paved road, with pets not "market" animals. So what does "farm" mean to you?
