I'm a former Chicagoan now living in Costa Rica. Because of my lifestyle change I've been able to fulfill my dream of owning chickens and love it .I'm a big believer of natural medicine I'm also a mother to 3 boys and 1 girl, a golden retriever, sheltie and cocker spaniel, 2 green parrots (who make more noise than all our pets together) and a lovebird. I;m glad to see there are so many people out there who love their chickens as I do. My name is Tricia, Pura Vida is the saying people use here to say something is good or OK literally translated it means pure life. Looking forward to broadening my knowledge through the website.
