    Salutations from the chicken yard

    I've decided that I am now going to be a chicken owner for the rest of my life for as long as I can. I love chickens and got my first pair when I was 10 (one turned out to be a rooster, oops! But the other was a hen. Lucky day). I've moved a lot, went to school, and rented, so I could never own...

I thought we'd get 6 heritage Rhode Island Reds, and 1 Blue Bell and 1 Americauna. This so we can send "Easter eggs" home...
