Hi My name is Shelley Mancinelli,

I am a mother of 3 great kids 8.7 and 2 years old, from Washington Twp ,Michigan I started my chicken project in May 2010. I am raising 7 silkie chickens, 3 Rhode Island Reds, and 2 pekin ducks that I rescued from a great lady that took in these ducks from a vet that have been dumped, 2 Leg Horns and 2 Barred Rock Babies!!

I live in a subdivison, so my neighbors think I the crazy. We are not aloud to have livestock, but heck why not.

I have been obessed with this project and I find it very addicting. I cant seem to get my coop just the way I want it so Im driving my husband crazy with all my ideas and changes.

I cant wait to get more, if my neighbors will tolaterate me. But Im sure having a great time doing it.
