About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

The Winner Is...

hnkytnkwmn3 !!!!

Congratulations! I have three India Blue peachicks, and one white peachick! They are two months old. I have wanted to get these birds for so long. Looking for a year and a half or so. They are so expensive because most breeders won't sell a young bird. The only ones you see for sale are six months or older. An adult pair can go for as little as a hundred dollars if you are really lucky, but usually they run anywhere between 150 and 300 dollars depending on where you look. I got these four sweeties for ninety dollars yesterday.

I will elaborate on the story more in another entry, but I thought it would be fun for everyone to guess what they might be with their little twiggy heads. :) Here are pictures of them in the carrier right after we got them home yesterday. Aren't they so sweet? Their eyes are HUGE...like eyes on a deer...so deep and innocent.

hnkytnkwmn3...if you would please send me your name and address through my email...I would like to send you something special for guessing what the new addition to my little farm was. :) Thankyou everyone for guessing and playing...and Jim, you are just a hoot! You make me laugh...lol.

Oh, they are so cute!  I love them.   Now, when will you know if they are boys and/or girls?  Or do you already know?  If you have a pair there..are you going to let them mate?  Linda in WA
