Greetings! I have fallen in love. I've wanted chickens since I was a little girl playing at my Papa's house. We moved to TN 10 years ago and bought 5 acres with the thought of getting horses one day. Well as most of you know work and life gets in the way and fast forward to today I am now the very proud owner of 4 beautiful girls now in my homemade brooder basking under the heat lamp. I've been following this site for weeks researching what breeds would be best for us so a big shout out to all who have contributed to our descision. I look forward to learning as much as I can from your experience.
