Egg BasketIt all started because we wanted a few chickens for fresh eggs. Okay, I wanted a few chickens for fresh eggs.  But how do you have a few chickens when you live in a 40′ RV coach?  Take a look at some of the following pages and learn how we did it.  It has certainly been an adventure.

From those first few chickens, we have added (and then subtracted) turkeys, ducks, and rabbits.  Thankfully, we’re not in that coach any more.

Like so many, we started with hatchery bred Rhode Island Reds and Barred Rocks chickens.  Then I saw an Ameraucana and fell in love! We have decided to focus on just the Ameraucanas and we now have: wheaten and blue wheaten Ameraucanas , and we’ve just added a trio of white Ameraucanas.  Of course, we’ll always have some beautiful little Easter Eggers and a few Olive Eggers to fill our egg basket for Sunday breakfast!

Our first hatch of this season brought us three little wheaten/blue wheaten chicks (too early to tell which yet) and we have more eggs in the incubator!
