    Hi there! I'm Maggie, a twenty-seven year old mother of one from Ohio. My son, husband, and I have twenty-six chickens that we adore. We've had chickens for about two years now. Just recently, we jumped from having our six grown hens, to acquiring twenty more chicks just in the past few weeks. My husband was born and raised on a local dairy farm, and after spending some time there, I decided I wanted to venture into the lifestyle. We lived nearby and we bought a few chickens and I fell in love. After the birth of our son, time was a value and we got rid of our chickens. When our son was old enough, we picked right back up and here we are now.[​IMG]

    Our current breeds are..
    Rhode Island Red - 2
    Isa Brown - 3
    Easter Egger - 7
    Black Australorp - 6
    White Silkie Banham - 2
    Buff Orpington - 2
    Red Ranger - 4


    I'm known as the crazy chicken lady at work, so I'm very excited to have found a place where I can actually make friends whom share my interests and passions! Thanks for the welcome!

    How nice you could get back into raising chickens! And teaching a kid to care for any animal is great for them (and helpful to the parents).

    Thanks for joining us, it's nice to have you here. Nice mixed flock you have there!
