Hello fellow chicken parents my name is Alysha, I've been using this website since I got my chickens. I never got around to making an account and there have been some things I've wanted to bring up on the forums so it seemed like a good time. I find this site very resourceful and helpful. My husband and I have 3 RIRs, they are our pets and we eat their eggs. They are almost 2 years old in Late spring 2017. Their names are Wishbone, Omelet and Chunks. . We currently have a smaller backyard setup, but in the future I'd love to expand and add more to my flock because I just love chicken keeping. We are also gardeners and backyard bee keepers (incase anyone has questions about other homesteading) I try to keep them as organic as possible, and they get lots of table scraps from us. now prepare for cute chicken picture photo bombing lol!
