    We started our chicken adventure this July we (mostly I) decided that we might as well have chickens, we have a farm and plenty of room! So we purchased a small chicken coop box kit, put it together and bought our first 2 chickens (Ladder & Transformer) off craigslist the next day. Since then we have added 8 more chickens and are currently about to finish an upgraded permanent coop.

    We spend most of our spare time enjoying the outdoors with our 6 pit bulls, 3 of which are specialty search and rescue dogs. I am also a dog trainer and have been doing pit bull rescue for almost 13 years. When I'm not working with my own animals I enjoy my membership on our local humane society board of directors and helping animals of all kinds furry, feathered,domestic or wild.

    I work nights as a 911 dispatcher, so don't be surprised if I creep around here in the early morning hours :)

    We look forward to learning from all of you! Our little chicken experiment has been so much fun so far, can't wait to see what the future bring us and our little hens!

    Chickens:
    Ladder (Araucauna mix - blue layer)
    Transformer (Araucauna mix - blue layer)
    Fencepost (Golden Sex link)
    Barbwire (Araucana - blue layer)
    Mailbox (Australorp)
    Peaches (Araucana (rumpless)- olive layer)
    Cocolalla (Red-laced splash wyandotte)
