  What kinds of chickens do you have? We have an assorted flock :) and we have now hatched out about 10 ducklings! It is so exciting to see your babies come.
Good luck with your chicks!

I bought 13 chicks back in March sadly lost 3. I wanted to suplement our grocery s buy having eggs. The girs were doing well til I went on vacation leaving them in the care of my husband and he managed to let them out and I lost all but 4. I was so sad then realize one survivor was a rooster..

Today got my first egg. yea!!

  Midget Whites
I don't know off hand how big midget whites get, but they stay smaller than other types of turkeys. They are small enough that they continue to be able to fly as adults. Mine roost on top of a six-foot fence, and they regularly go in and out of the pasture on their own. I kept their wings clipped for a while, but we actually lost more of them to predators then since they could not get up and out of reach. I am hoping that they raise lots of babies on their own next spring, because I did not do a very good job. Of the 16 poults we started with, only 4 are still alive.

What a pretty! I have Huskys and Husky/Border Collies. They have learned to put up with the goats but they'd have chicken for dinner, in a heartbeat!

  My grandchildren and I hatched three chicks in our incubator from eggs collected from my cousins farm last summer. A snake got into the brooder box and we lost all three. We know the thrill of a good hatch. Next time we will be more careful. Come visit me, Ann at Tyfton Acres

I used to go by the moniker "Squid" when I was in the music business and since it paid for the seven acres and freedom 45, why not.

  Hello, do you have a suggestion on a white egg laying chicken breed that isn't solid white? We have a white sex link name Dovey and she along with the rest free range during the day. Dovey has fallen in love with the Mississippi red clay that's in the woods and we can keep her clean unless we cage her and that's not going to happen here unless they are sick. Thanks for you time.

  Thanks for the warm welcome
You seem to have many farms, chickens, cattle, goats and more. Are they all at one place or do you work from many farms. I welcome the time I have many different farm animals. And that I might even be able to make a profit at farming. Right now just beef cows and soon chicks. Thanks again for the welcome. Hope all you places do well.

  Love the picture...right now we are raising pigs, but hope to have chickens next year...we have three little pigs, and this is our first year too...although I was raised on a small farm, that was a long long time ago...and now we are raising two grandchildren, and thought this was the best place...we are hopeing to start out with the eggs to raise the chickens so that the kids can see them from the start...
best of luck...

  Thx for the comment
My husband took that pic right after a quick summer shower that only lasted about ten minutes. There was another rainbow off to the right further away but this was the best pic for actually seeing the closer one.
I recently lost my job due to our lovely economy- store closed that I managed- so hope to keep learning and meeting people to learn from so we can keep our "alternative" pets happy and healthy. Always a rainbow with every storm? More time to do something I actually love doing now!
Nice dog pic, 16 is up there for a husky so must be well loved ; )

They really are fascinating, they have so much more personality than you'd think! Watching the first batch of eggs hatch really is something indescribable until you experience it yourself! Then you get to watch them grow into beautiful creatures!

Thanks for the comment!

My bunnies are very photogenic. I even have friends come at Easter to have pictures taken with the rabbits. I would love to have chickens also, but we have a big coyote problem and no good way to confine the chickens at night. Luckily, I have several friends who have country eggs I can get.
