    The damn bald eagles and chicken hawks are so thick around here you don't have to worry about the possums and raccoons getting the chickens...or chicks or eggs

    I love seeing these posts that touch on the subject of self sufficiency. For me the topics of politics, and self sufficiency are inseperable.

    Right now I have 4 Wyandotte hens with a Jubilee Orpington rooster. My favorites are Orpingtons.....they are calm, lay plenty of eggs, sometimes double yolkers and big enough for a meal. Sometimes they will brood and are good mama's. I'm also going to get a couple Marans for the darker eggs and I understand they are good brooders as well

    I've had a few good hens in the past that have hatched out chicks and I keep kicking myself for having gotten rid of them.
