EE's, Buff Orps, Delawares, Blue Splash,Cuckoo and Blue Cooper Marans,
I only have a few here in Lithia Springs. I hatched a lot of babies for the Remember the Farm Event but they will not be staying here. Most of my chickens live on our big 80 acre farm in Wedowee, AL. I also have a small farm in Villa Rica.
Getting fresh eggs. Then hatching them and watching the chicks grow. I love to fill the incubator and watch what happens. NO MORE HATCHING FOR THE YEAR.
Off and on since I was about 13.
My cousin made a bet with me when I was about 13, that I could not catch his chicks. He knew I would get flogged by the hen. If I caught them I could have them. So I caught 6 of them and brought them home with me. I was hooked!
I have been raising EE chickens and now I am getting pure Ameraucana's, Blue Marans, Buff Orps and Delawares. I will still have a few EE around. Love the blue eggs no need to dye they at easter.LOL
I think this meet up group is great. I have had chickens and birds for many years and still I feel like a newbie at times. I am learning right along with everyone else. With out them to chat with I would feel very alone in this.
