    The passion for chickens, it starts differently for all of us and takes a different path for all of us as well. My birds are my comapnions. I speak to them and they listen without judgement. They let me hold them and cry into their soft feathers when I am sad and boy oh boy do they love testing new goodies when I get into the baking frenzy.
    My birds brought me out of a deep depression last summer and I am forever greatful to them. I also suffer with fibromyalgia and RA, these birds give me a reason to push myself to get up every morning. I am happy and am able to deal with my problems better because of them.
    Here are a few pics of just some of my friends

    This is Blaze, the most gentle and sweet rooster in the whole flock. He is a golden sebrite and remains the boss. [​IMG]
    Here she is the lovely Katana. She is treated like a princess and is the most respected hen. She is Blaze's girl and no one had better even think about looking at her.

    I ordered a batch or 10 chicks in oct. 2 each, rhode island red ( Herra and Artemis) Black Langshan ( Pandora and Bast) Black Australorp ( Athena and Aphrodite) Silver laced wyandotte ( Freya and Venus) and Dark Brahma ( Luna and Isis) They are all names of goddess (they are all sexed pullets) so they are dubbed the goddess chicks
