I’m new

hello! I am new to this site and can’t wait to get my hands on the wealth of knowledge available here. In my adult life, I am a Wife,mother of 3 and an ICU nurse. In my delusioned “spare time” I like to ride horses and have discovered my new obsession: CHICKENS!

I bought my first 6 Rural King pullets (silver and gold laced Wyandottes) 6 months ago. One died by cat the first day, but the other 5 (my spice girls) were thriving! As they got older I started noticing one bigger and feathering differently than the others. lo and behold, I lost my “spice girls” and Roo-Paul was named. As they got bigger, my chicken fever got worse.

2 weeks ago I went and bought an Ayam Cemani hen and cockerel. I fell in love with their picture and what research I was able to do. I drove 2 hours to pick up my 2 new birds and when I got home, I showed my new treasures to my husband and kids....along with the 3 chicks I snagged too. 2 were another breed I had fallen in love with (Vorwerk)...needless to say, chicken Matt is real!!!

I look forward to learning as much as I can and expanding my obsession into SOMETHING productive! Can’t wait to get to know everyone as well!
