    Hi all.....just got chicks during "chick days" this spring. Loving it, and so is my reluctant husband. He always laughs when people ask me what I do, and I reply, " I'm a chicken wrangler and bee keeper." , they don't usually know how to continue the conversation! At this time we have 4 Silver Laced Wyandottes, 2 Plymouth Barred Rocks, 4 Easter Eggers, 2 red hatchery girls that lay brown eggs, 6 Cream Legbars - one of which is a cockerel, 4 black and 1 blue Orpingtons, and last but not least......1 White Creasted Black Polish roo who needs a home, (hint-hint), that was given to me by a friend. We are also owned by 3 dogs, 2 boxers and a standard poodle. It's always fun around here.

    I am working on trying to build some sort of business around the chickens and bees. Our 3 acre spread has been given the moniker "Wind Whipt Acres" because the wind truly does whip us here.

    You can find tons of pictures on my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/#!/kimberly.marshall.54

    you will need to be friended (is that a word?) to see them, and if you would like to know more just give me a holler.

    I used to live in Bainbridge, work in Crawfordsville, and have friends still in the area. I miss the covered bridges. My husband and I are going to try and hit the Covered Bridge Festival this fall. What kind of chickens do you have?

    Bantam

    What kind of bantam are you looking for? I have a couple of silkie roosters looking for homes. They are around 5 months old, and FREE! Also have a Lavender Amerucana chick, a silkie chick, both around 5 weeks, and bantam chocolate Orpington Roos all for sale. Not sure what you are looking for. Let me know if you are interested in anything I have or I may know someone who has what you are looking for. Welcome

    Thought I posted this but it must have been on a different thread. Our 4H club has several extra banty chicks that are about two weeks old. They are show quality. Message me if you want a contact number. We are in Columbus.
