    Hi-ho everybody :)

    My name is Georgiana and I run a chicken breeding business with my friend Avery. We call it Two Chicks Chix. We're located is South Florida and love all things farming.

    I grew up in a household that had all different types of farm-life, from dogs and cats, to horses, prairie dogs, snakes, goats, turkeys, and yes chickens. So i've always had a love for living the quiet farm life, even though I feel the city calls to me too.

    Right now we have a few different breeding pens with some B/B/S, Wheaten/Blue Wheaten and Lavender Ameraucanas, Silkies, Black Copper Marans, Easter Eggers, B/B/S Laced Red Wyandottes, Olive Eggers, Mille Fleur/Mottled/Gold Neck D'uccles, as well as a dozen pet or project birds. We're basically overrun by chickens

    However, chicken breeding isn't all I do. I'm actually a graphic designer and animator, which is how I can afford to give into my chicken wanting needs. Plus I have a service dog named Kaluo due to some genetic health issues I have. Since I don't exactly want to pass on bad genes to my children, I let my chickens be my children instead, and baby them a lot.

    This is why I love my chickens, they are just so fun and crazy to watch and hang out with in the afternoon, and watching a flock of over 70 birds come racing towards you for snack time is one of the best things to see!

    So thanks everyone for hearing about my crazy chicken life, I guess chicken math got the best of me.
