    I have been raising chickens for four years now. Ever since my daughter did a hatching project for her middle school science fair. She took first place, but I feel as if I was the winner. I have found a hobby that does every thing from giving me an avenue to direct all that mothering that my 15 year old does not want to making friends that I never knew existed. There are truly lots of crazy people out there that are just as obsessed with their animals as I am. I raise SQ silkies, cochins, rare color orpingtons, and golden cuckoo marans. I also have a goat, three toy aussies and I raise show quality holland and fuzzy lop rabbits. My husband thinks that I'm crazy, but I would hate to see me without all the mouths to feed. I have truly found my purpose in life. There is no greater feeling than after twenty one days, seeing little chicks submerge from their protective shell into my protection or the cuteness of baby bunnies. You can not see either of these things and not know that there is a God. I look forward to making new friends on BYC.
