    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.


    I'm a stay at home Mom who found out she loves chickens! So that's been my "me" thing since I'm home all day with my toddler. I love to garden to provide good food for my family! We hike and camp and canoe together on a regular bases.

    (7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community? :D


    Found you all on Facebook and have found some great threads of advice!
