I free-range my flock. 19 chickens on 44 acres means I don't notice or care about a lil chicken poop.

I'm thinking about guineas this year. I'd love some nice loud birds to alert me to when the neighbor's chicken eating dog has escaped again.

I LOVE my chickens!! I have a hodge/podge of breeds. I buy them to get as many different colors of eggs as I can. As of today, I am back up to ten hens (no rooster).

My coop is a redone utility building and two dog pens put together.







I just picked up three new easter eggers, which brings my EE's up to six. This is one of them.



I have a silkie/cochin cross that has the most engaging personality. Meet Amelia



a Polish named Phyllis (as in Diller).



A new girl, Ebony the Black Copper Moran.



And Rocky, my retired Barred Rock...sold to me as a young bird, but not....





I love my chickens and really enjoy their fun personalities.

I have 6 barred rock hens, 4 easter egger hens, as well as 2 barred rock roosters. One of the roosters lives in the coop with the hens. The other one wanders around the yard. He follows me around like a dog. He won't eat chicken feed. He prefers horse feed, dog feed, or cat feed.
