Hi everyone, I'm really excited to rejoin the world of chicken keeping. I raised RIR and a couple Bantums growing up. My rooster, James, was the best pet. I've finally started up my backyard flock (today) after 15 yrs without chickens and I'm so excited. I settled on Dominques and look forward to the adventure with my new bitties. I'm also a mother, wife, gardener, rock climber, baby catcher, lactivist, and crunchy family medicine doc.
