Hey everyone! My name is Lauren, I’m 28 years old full time vet tech. Between myself and my husband we have 2 dogs, 4 cats, 11 snakes, 1 lizard, and bins with worms for composting, super worms and dubias. I primarily take care of the reptiles while the cute and cuddly critters are my husbands favorite. We will also be getting meat rabbits and honey bees within the next few years. We live on 3.25acres of hill and will be getting our first chicks soon! I’ll be having a coop made since neither of us have the time, or know how, to make a coop. A few breeds I want to get are: - Orpingtons (there is a local breeder settling Mottled Lavenders!) - Ameracaunas - Easter Eggers - Olive Eggers - Silkies (husbands favorite) We are getting chickens for a number of reasons: eggs, and meat. I’m aware the breeds I am looking into are primarily used for eggs which is why meat is last. Open to meeting like minded individuals!
