    Hi everyone,

    I’m brandy new at raising chickens! Below are our girls Savanna, Madison, Lucy, Brenda, Ellie Mae and Chrissy!

    Did my research prior to getting into this and had more feedback of an encouraging nature than otherwise. Starting off this year with these beauties for eggs, next year I’d like to add “dinner” ones.

    In the process of working on their permanent living quarters and looking forward to making it look really nice! Always welcome any and all feedback and for sure I’ll be a regular on here!

    Looking forward to “meeting y’all “
