Jordanne grew up as a farm girl living in the most unlikely of places -- the concrete jungle sprawl of Los Angeles. She lives on the Urban Homestead where she shares her life with a wacky and always entertaining menagerie of goats, ducks, chickens, cats, bees, and stray animals that land up on her porch. Her passions are the natural and sustainable care of animals and her knowledge lies in successfully integrating "farm" animals into the city lifestyle. Jordanne also contributes to her family's blog called Little Homestead in the City -- chronicling this bizarre, beautiful, and often hilarious journey they're on.

  1. We have about 40 chickens. We have several different breeds but my favorite are the bantys and the Auracans that lay a green egg. Always fun to see someone who has never so greens eggs before!!

  2. My family and I have enjoyed our wonderful flock of 6 hens for just over a year now! We love each of their different personalities. One of my Americanas was broody and recently hatched one fluffy black chick from some borrowed eggs. A new adventure every day!

  3. I have 43 chickens. I also have 2 nephews and 1 niece that are very “helpful”. So our Chooks are very spoiled.

  4. We have 2 hens and 3 (hopefully) pullets. We had a lovely Buff
    Orpington rooster, Mr. Fluffy.He fathered the 3 pullets. Had a single neighbour complain about his crowing, off he went to live on a lovely farm to live with a new harem. I miss his crowing and the show he would put on for the ladies! Maybe one day we can move out of town, of interest to note, we can have anything in our small VA town but a pig!

  5. We have four Khaki Campbell ducks. We are planning to adopt a drake in the near future. They just started laying in the last couple of weeks. I’m feeling very Mama Duck proud.

  6. We have 9 chicks at the moment, 5 Marans and 4 blue Cochins. We can have up to 12 hens where we are in the city of Colorado Springs. We hope to have fresh eggs in the spring.

  7. We have 5 hens that have been apart of our family for a little over a year. We are planning on adding to our flock next spring and raise some baby chicks.

  8. We have five hens. We got the pullets for the baby girl at Easter time and have lost a couple, and added a few more to the flock. We are just starting to get eggs everyday from the older girls. Two are very snuggly and will greet me with a warm hug when i come out to the yard. I have just recently set up the baby’s video infant monitor in their hen house so i can keep an eye on them at night.. it is awesome!

  9. We have 4 hens: one ameraucana, two Delawares and a rhode island red. We are going to get 2 more hens and 2 ducks in the spring! Now, if only I could convince my husband that having a goat is essential πŸ™‚

  10. We have 2 dozen egg layers – Heritage breeds. I just love my hens. We will be expanding the flock in the spring, also adding turkeys.

  11. I have five hens currently – a Buff Orpington, an Araucauna, a Black Astrolorp, a Barred Rock, and a Silver Lace Wyandotte. I did that to be able to tell them apart!!! Would like to add some ducks next spring and possibly two dwarf goats.

  12. We have around 20 adult chickens, with about 10-15 others at various stages of youth (from baby chicks up to newly feathered-in). Working on specific breeding patterns to eventually develop our own variety/breed. (just because we can). We let the broody mamas incubate and raise all our chicks – we find it is a much more successful method than artificial incubators (can’t do as many eggs at a time, but you end up with healthier chicks that follow a protective mama around everywhere and learn from her).

  13. Newbie! We live in the inner city in the midwest – we have 4 – 19 week pullets. We’re (I should say I!) am planning to add another 4 this coming spring. I have to say my Easter Egger, Lucy Liu, is my favorite.

  14. I have 5 hens. 1 Silkie, 2 Silver-Laced Wyandottes, 1 Gold-Laced Wyandotte, and 1 Buff Orpington. I have had them for over a year and will never be without chickens!

  15. Presently we have chicken wise: in the hen department 2 Buff-Orpingtons, 3 Gold- Laced Wyandottes and 4 Rhode Island Reds plus 1 too-big-for-his-britches Buff-Orpington rooster and duck-wise: 3 Khaki Campbells and 2 runners, 2 of which have just started laying. We love duck eggs πŸ™‚ We are really enjoying the busy-ness of the ducks…they are so fun to watch. We also have a pair of Roman Tufted geese who are very gifted in the personality department!!!! If I win, I’d love to try the duck supplement…thanks!

  16. Hello!
    Right now we have about 42 hens and 3 roosters πŸ™‚ All of which are at various stages – large, medium and small. We have up and coming hens who are still laying smaller eggs, on up to our older, mature hens. We raise a variety, but try to keep to the older, heirloom, homestead types. Oh, and we have one goose who came in with a storm a year ago and has taken up residence with the chickens. We would like to get ducks but have to figure out where to put them πŸ™‚

  17. I only have one hen right at the moment. She was raised from a chick by my son for a high school class. She’s a hoot! I plan to ger 2 more.

  18. We are just getting started with our suburban homestead! Thanks to friends who overbought chicks in the spring, we have just brought home our first two pullets—Pixie (Rhode Island Red) and Sylvia (Buff Orpington). Both girls have settled in beautifully and are laying one egg a day each. They are utterly delightful and wonderful additions to the family!

  19. This would be great as we are just starting out, if I don’t win I think i will end up getting it for my girls. Thanks you. We are total newbies!

  20. Last spring I decided I wanted some chicks and made a visit to my local Tractor supply. Came Home with 8 little chicks. I share stories of my little flock almost daily with my friends on Facebook. Hitchcock, the big black rooster,Tweezer, the little silkie rooster, the Dixie chicks, are just some of the flock that brighten lives all over the Facebook nation with their funny personalities.,

  21. We currently have 20 young chickens-most of which are appearring to be pullets! YEAH! I am down to 3 layers-due to a very sneaky coon and my Auracauna rooster-who just 2 weeks ago began crowing! I couldn’t believe how much I’d missed that wonderful noise!! Have a great day!
