Hello, my name is Heather. Here I am with my dog, an Australian Blue Heeler named Talli. I live in the mountains of Virginia in a small hollow on 3.17 acres, and I just started keeping chickens in the spring of 2011. I began my flock by incubating eggs and now have: 4 Easter Eggers, 3 Silver Ameraucanas, 2 Speckled Sussexes, 1 Welsummer, and 1 Golden Phoenix.
I also write a blog about chickens, cooking, baking, and gardening called Scratch Cradle, and I hope that you come and visit!​
