    I was raised on a farm with horses, cattle and goats however, I am new to chickens. Other than FFA projects for my children I haven't had farm animals in over 20 years. We had chickens on our farm when I was a young girl but my brother took care of them.
    I have 13 babies about 2 1/2 weeks old right now. They include (4) BB Reds, (5) Mottled Houdans, and (4) I think they are called Braeburns??
    I have a good friend that raises chickens. I have always wanted some. My kids show pigs in FFA. Since my daughter graduates this year and will not be showing anymore it opened up a pen that I could convert to a coop. So now I am in the chicken business.
    My 12 year old niece has taken ownership of the babies too. She comes over everyday after school and plays with them.

    My two teenage children, 8 nieces and nephews, and 2 dogs are my other hobbies
    I am married with two teenagers. My daughter graduates high school this year and will be moving to Athens, Texas to start college and play college softball. My son is a sophmore in high school he plays football, basketball, and basebal.
    I am a property insurance adjuster and am currently finishing my Bachelors in Business Management and will move right on to my Masters hopefully in Psychology.

    Along with my 13 baby chicks I have a boston terrier and LabraBull (Lab/Pit mix). We've suffered two tragedies this year. We lost Boebe our English Bulldog of 13 years and Miss Kitty, our cat of 16 years. We miss them dearly:(
