    Hi! My name is Stephanie, I live in rural Virginia, and I have never owned or been around a live chicken in my life! My boyfriend has been wanting to get a few for eggs and Sunday dinner, even though I'm reluctant to eat animals I plan on raising from eggs, lol.

    I have to say, I've learned more about chickens in one day from doing all my research, then I thought I would ever learn about them in a lifetime! After doing all this research, I'm planning on getting a small mix of Orpingtons and Silkies, since I have read really good things about both breeds and my boyfriend must have a "Tina Turner chicken," lol. I'm a stay at home mom, with a three year old son who loves to be outside and helping do chores around the house and also a 3 month old daughter. We are looking to start on our coop in a few weeks, then getting chicks (or eggs to hatch if I can find what I'm looking for close to home) and I couldn't be more excited! The chickens aren't the only animals we'll be adding to our family in the coming weeks, we are also getting a new puppy! This site has been the most helpful so far! I know I'll be using it as a reference for a very long time! :)
