Searching the internet for answers to chicken questions (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Gardening, rescuing dogs, scrapbooking & raising my family. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. Im married to my highschool sweetheart, we have 2 children, 2 dogs, & 15 Chickens. Although we have always gardened this is our first year on 4.5 acres so we have decided to add chickens to our experience. Our girls & 1 suspected boy will only be for eggs. No eatting our girls, though we do eat chicken! I am very excited to become part of this community!
