    Hi. My name is Cheyenne. My dad used to have chickens when I was younger & I always wanted them for myself. Just 3 years ago, I moved out (waaay out) to the country and decided to have my own little farm.
    I'm an RN, married, with 2 kids. We have a doberman: Nori, 2 cats: Shadow & Cassie, 2 horses: Ashe & Foxy, and currently 6 chickens: Blackie, Dovie, Goldie, Gypsy, Phoenix, and Burgundy (wheezie.)
    I found this site when I was looking for info on hatching eggs. We recently lost 10 chickens to a predator. The predator issue has been solved for now, but we lost our beautiful SLW roo, Betty. I tried to hatch some eggs that were his - only 1 live chick so far. I heard some peepin' from another egg this am, but nothing since.
    My neighbor up the road lost all his chickens, though, so I still consider myself lucky.
    In loving memory of Betty, Hauke, Roadrunner, Duchess, Red, Merlot, Goldhen, Pretty, Fesent, and Hedwig.

    Thank you.
    People here have been so helpful and kind! It's nice to interact with others who understand that I love my chickens just as much as my other animals.
