Originally we thought that chickens would be a nice addition to the farm because who doesn’t love farm fresh eggs?! When we moved from Alabama to Indiana, we downsized our flock significantly.
After raising a barnyard mix we started to research different breeds of chickens to add to our flock. Eventually, we settled on Silver Ameraucanas, Black Copper Marans, & Olive Eggers. We occasionally bring other other breeds to see if we like them (right now we have Silver & Gold Laced Wyandottes, Easter Eggers, Jersey Giants, Welsummers, & Sapphire Gems) but we’re trying to keep a small flock that is focused on breed standards.
