      There is great beauty in the candling of an egg. To marvel that we all began so simply, and become magnificent.

    UPDATE: We have found our farm! It’s miraculously right behind my house. Please pray for us that we can become the lucky owners very soon. You know what that means- more chickens!
    I got my first trio- Bielefelder, Cochin, and Olive Egger about four months ago. I fell in love, so of course it made sense to buy 29 cochin hatchlings and start incubating leghorns and golden comets. Soon I had fifty! I’ve been mostly giving them away or selling them for practically nothing since then. I’ve hatched several extremely successful batches of eggs since, including one duckling who thinks he is a chicken. But don’t fear, I’m buying him a companion or two on Saturday.
    Currently, I have my original trio, one adult Silkie hen, a juvenile Silkie, five juvenile Cochins in addition to my first cochin (three of which are bantam, and of those, two are frizzles!), and four chicks of mysterious lineage that I hatched late December.
    I joke that I’ve owned practically every vertebrate type besides turtles and crocodilians. This is hyperbole, but I am atremendous lover of all creatures. I’ve had snakes, geckos, anoles, bearded dragons, fish, guinea pigs, rats, hamsters, tree frogs, some invertebrates, and naturally cats and dogs.
    Sadly, as part of the repercussions of my divorce nearly three years ago, I had to sell or rehome my exotic pets. I’m still sad, but I know I’ll own a plethora of animals onceagain. My oldest is allergic to most mammals, so that’s also tragic for us both since she loves critters as much as me.
    I’m recently engaged (applause and cheers), and our dream is to own a farm. So I anticipate many feathered friends and tons of other species to come.
    I’m a middle school science teacher, and I love introducing my animals and students to each other. They loved my chickens as babies, but they’re a bit intimidated by their current juvenile/young adult size.
