  1. I have commented here before, but I love this blog and especially enjoyed the genetics mini-series. We have 40 chickens here. A bunch of older hatchery girls, olive eggers, a tiny flock of lavender Ameraucanas, and a tiny flock of Basques, hopefully soon to be a bigger flock. Your blog has me seeking out German NHs (yours are gorgeous) and non-hatchery Welsummers.

    I am one of those anti-Facebook people, so I can’t like anything there. And even though the jewelry is very cool and well-made, I’ve never worn jewelry. We didn’t even do wedding rings. So if I am to win a piece of jewelry, please pass it on to the next winner! The magnets would be perfect, though.
    I can’t wait to see what you are up to next!

  2. I would absolutely love to win one of your 4- 100th subscribers gifts. I especially love the chick bracelet. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win and good luck on many more subscribers! 🙂

  3. The bracelet is really nice, but those magnets are awesome. I love my chickens and geese, so I will enjoy the information on your sight. Congratulations on the great start.

  4. I have about 40 chickens of all different breeds. My Buff Orpingtons are the sweetest but I love having a variety of colors and sizes in my chickens and my eggs. We also have a JRT named Emily, a calico cat named Olive, and two gray rabbits named Dandelion and Blackberry.

  5. I have been a reader of your blog ever since Max at The Fruity Chicken spoke about your genetics posts. You have a great way of making the information understandable. I am raising Americaunas, Wyandottes, Marans and Dark Cornish. This is my first year back in to raising livestock and my only regret is that I waited so long to get started as an adult.Thankfully I’m not yet 40 so with any luck I will have plenty of time to live my dream life.
    I blog at I would love your input if you ever get a chance to take a peek.

    • Thank you! I appreciate your comment. I did take a look at your blog, and I really like it! I especially love the “evaluating species” posts where you take a look at each new animal you’ve introduced to your homestead and how it has worked out over the past year. I’m a follower now!

  6. I love my birds. Current favorites are bantam white Wyandotte chickens and black east Indie ducks. My silkie ducks are also pretty awesome along with Lucy goosey who is actually a male Emden.

    I would love to be the owner of that cute bracelet.
