My name is Deanna Birr and I live in Florida. I'm new to raising chickens and new to the forum. We live on 5 acres. Started out with 4 golden retrievers and a cat. Now down to 3 goldens, 1 cat, 2 donkeys and 6 chickens. My relatives tease that we are "ol McDonald's farm" in the making. I love my chickens and dont think I could ever make a meal of one. We got them to teach my grandson and for the eggs.
