    Greetings, My name is Imani and I am a widow of a veteran and home schooling mother of 6. Our family began this poultry journey a few years ago as our eldest daughter's affinity for animals blossomed. Shortly after moving into our one acre of urban bliss, our community gifted her a coop and a hen with 3 chicks. 5 deliveries of chick, 2 purchases from the local farmers market and a few purchases from the local feed store later she along with her 5 siblings have learned how to candle eggs, heal sick and wounded chickens using old herbal remedies passed on to then from a sage farmer, find and give fertile eggs to broody hens, sell eggs and raise and process chickens. Additionally, they have learned how to be in tune with the seasons, honor the circle of life and make some of the best dishes ever!

    This season we have learned how to reinforce our coop and run as well as make more cover for our remaining flock as resident critter got in the coop and the hawks have been taken all of our girls with sight issues. Presently we have 8 chickens (1 Black Star, 1-Easter Egg, 1-Rhode Island Red, 1-Buff Orpington, 1-Jersey Giant, 2-Plymouth Rock).

    As a family, we enjoy the outdoors more than being indoors. We enjoy taking care of our land and animals as they take care of us. We enjoy sharing our space and in season bounty with our friends, family and community. We love fresh or preserving the harvest so we can have some summer days of warmth and sweetness deep in the winter months. We enjoy traveling and exploring what we have studies with ALL of our senses.

    Our daughter found this sight many years ago as she was researching about chicken. We are learning about melanin and in our studies we came across the Ayam Cemanis breed. In our quest to purchase this breed BackYardChickens website popped up so we joined!

    Looing forward to learning more and encouraging other on their poultry journey!
