My name is Amy. My family and I live in Western North Carolina.
My husband will tell you that I do a lot of research about a subject before I purchase anything and he gets hear all about what I come across during my researching. So for the past 2 years before our first chicks arrived on May 22, 2009. I had been preparing for the purchase of our chickens. I came across BackYardChicks.com when searching the internet. I found much needed information and even found a topic on Stall Dry that I use with my other animals.
We now have 2 Silkie hens, 1 Silkie roo, 4 White Crested Black Polish hens. 6 Buff Orpington, 2 Cuckoo Marans and 2 little Cochin hens (arrived on May 22, 2009 from Ideal Poultry with 15 others), 2 Pygmy goats, 1 sassy cat and 1 Pomeranian dog.
The 17 Little Cochin Chicks that started it all!
