Hi, I'm Kristen and i wandered over here from BackYardHerds. I have owned chickens for about 5 years and have 17 free ranged birds that keep me thoroughly supplied in eggs, even in winter. My flock is a mix of bird species. They range from iridescent blues blacks and purples, to reds, whites and speckles. Even some of the females are iridescent. Sooooo pretty I live in north Alabama, I also have hoses dogs and cats. I plan to add on other animals but I am still working on getting this property up and running first.
