This is why I have chickens. Granted I have a few too many but my excuse is that I wanted 4 different breeds and only 2 of those could be sexed. Actually, only 1 was 100% accurate (Americauna). So after doing the calculations I determined that I should have enough to give me two hens of each breed. I had decided that if I ended up with too many roosters I would find them new homes. Well, it all worked out. I have 12 hens and 3 roosters and I love them all. I will have plenty of beautiful eggs to share.
Gardening in the Pacific Northwest.
Passionate about the rambling tangled look of a cottage garden. I love to spend multiple hours making it all happen in my 50+ perennial beds (including 26 rows in a cutting garden), heirloom vegie and herb garden with a few fruit trees and berries.
Please follow me as I note my successes and set-backs in my gardening venture.
