Why, Hello there!

Hello there! New to the group, but not new to raising chickens. My ex-husband and I had a flock of about 12 over 6 years ago, but I re-homed them with on a friend's farm when we split. I did miss my little cluckers, and so my current husband somewhat reluctantly agreed to let me keep some again. He's mostly reluctant because we also have 2 dogs, 3 cats, a snake, and a toddler, so there's a lot to take care of already.

As for chickens, we currently have 12, looking to get down to 4-6. The local store doesn't sex their chicks, so I over-bought to hedge my best against roosters (which I promised my husband wouldn't keep). Luckily, both my sister and one of my cousins also keep chickens, so one roo and 3 hens already have new homes to go to. We're keeping a couple Silkies, at least one Polish, 1 Sapphire Gem, 1 Salmon Faverolle, and 1 "Rainbow Dixie". The silkies just crack me up!
