Hi! I'm Audrey, but you can call me Aud, or my username, PatrickRoo! I live mostly in Southern Illinois with my mom, my younger sister, and a TON of animals. 3 dogs, 6 cats, 2 rabbits, 33 poultry birds, and 2 guinea fowl. I'd love to meet you all and these first few days have been great! I've recently discovered that I love birds, and I'm addicted to them. I have spent hours and hours on BYC in the past, (secretly) and I love it! I've only had birds since February but as soon as I picked up those first tiny chicks, I developed a HUGE "thing" for chickens, guinea fowl, turkeys and ducks. I don't have much more to say but thank you all for making my experience so far amazing! Here are some pictures of my chickens to show my gratitude!
