    Hello,
    My name is Rachel and I'm new to raising chickens. My husband's friend has a large backyard flock and gave us 6 of their baby chicks back in May. Fast forward to now and I'm pretty sure 3 of those 6 are roosters. I have 3 kiddos, 2 dogs and just added 2 baby turkeys to the homestead. I can't wait for our first egg! When I have freetime I create jewelry out of clay for my side business. I think my next creation will be a tiny chicken.
