    hi there.
    i'm chiqq, or chiq, whatever you want to refer to me with.
    I'm a teenager who has an interest in wild life and animals. I have two dogs currently, and I'm planning to get around 3-4 chickens for our backyard after we verify with our city that is it indeed okay.
    I joined this site so I could get advice when we're raising our chickens.
    Excited to meet people on here!
