    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I have a great husband and 3 fun boys (ages 6, 5 and 9 months) we have two pet rats, a fat lazy cat and a beta fish. I'm a stay at home mom. I have wanted chickens my whole life. I love love love chickens and my favorite food on earth is eggs.

    Here is a pic of my new chickens:

    They don't have firm names. The all black is "Sweetums" the brown looking one we think is "Nancy" but we call her "Fancy Nancy" and the Barred Rock we don't have a name for yet. (we are taking suggestions)
