I'm Christy, living in South Florida. I fell in love with chickens 3 years ago when I got a part time job with a mobile petting zoo. My favorite girl was a d'Uccle named Spot. Over a few months she would lay an egg during a birthday party. I was just screwing around and kept taking them home trying to incubate with an aquarium. One day I bought the styrofoam incubator. At the next petting zoo she laid an egg between my feet, I incubated it and her egg hatched!! So of course she needed friends. I currently have way too many roosters (4 to 4 hens - all Belgian Bantam mixes with feathered feet) who - knock on wood - are behaving. I would love to get into actually making a shed-type coop, but I can barely tie my shoes - still dreaming about it. I'm a full time professional pet sitter and am around animals 24/7.
