    Hello everyone,
    My name is Tina and I’m currently planted in Alabama. Im a disabled Veteran’s wife and caregiver and Artist. I’m originally from Lancaster Co. PA, PA Dutch, so farming was always In close range just not outside my back door.
    I’ve been researching and hoping to start my own little chicken family and I finally made the leap, my little silkies are expected the first week of December! I’m excited and scared so I’m looking to find as much advice as I can to give them a healthy, happy home!

    Hello Tina and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.

    I'm in upstate NY a short drive north from where you came from in PA.
