    Hi ,I live in Colorado
    I have around 60 chickens a mix of Rhoad Island reds and Orpington buffs along with about 10 supposed rares. We have a huge chicken coop on the ranch about 60ft by 30ft. I sell my eggs to other ranchers around me. I have 6 geese and 4 duck who are the Quack Patrol here to keep everyone in line. I also have a 17 Guineas that keep the snakes away from the coop and are great for cleaning out any pest from my garden.
    I also rise a few cattle. Soon I am hoping to get some pigs, as soon as we finish the pens for them. We are still in the process of doing a lot of fencing on the place, (that never seems to end) :eek:.. I love the country life!!!!

    I lived in Colorado as a child, some of my best memories were going to my aunt and uncles ranch, near Eagle, and getting to help collect eggs and chase barn cats. More than one time I had galled with my shirt tales full of eggs. What a mess. Welcome to the forum!

    Welcome from lower Michigan! We own a farm also, I wish I had as many as u! I have a mix of 40 hens and a few roos. 2 ducks, Cheese and Quackers! 70 head of cattle and 1300 acres of crops! along with our family dog and cat. It gets a little busy around here but every minute is worth it, i wish i had some Guineas but we live at the very end of a dirt road that just happens to end into a swamp of approx 300+ acres with lots of Coyotes and fox along with a pair of Bald Eagles and 1 juvinile Eagle and a multitude of hawks so i pretty much have to leave everyone "cooped" up unless im home to chase critters away with my broom or the dog! i have even been know to throw my shoes at a hawk that was trying to take Quackers!! Anyway, glad to have you along!
