    Hello! I live in sunny (currently rainy) central Florida with my husband and 3 year old son. We are in the process of getting chickens. ( Still have to build a coop and run). I grew up with backyard chickens and have such fond memories, I cannot wait for my son to experience them!

    We had bantums and larger red and black chickens...I haven't figured out the breeds yet of the larger chickens. We also had a silkie..she was my favorite! I would like to have a variety, 6 max. I am hoping to get started in the next month!

    Wish me luck :)
