My name is Krista and I hail from Fernandina Beach Florida, a tiny but, super cool island. I've never raised a chicken but, I like animals. I currently have 2 dogs, a cat, and a large saltwater fish tank(which I love). Again, never raised a chicken but, I raised a mallard duckling a few years back and she comes to the same pond behind my house every winter. I am 18 and living at home while getting ready to start college and the idea of keeping chickens has floated in my mind for a few years now. Never asked my mom until last night which she wasn't thrilled about lol. However, I think I can maybe talk her into it if I can find if it is even legal to own them. That being said, I also found this really funny video of a rooster that reminded me of a death metal singer I liked. http://www.facefou.com/videos/watch-3553 Anyways, thanks for the welcome and if you have any ideas on how to help me out with the politics(with the city and my mother) that'd be great.
