    Hello everyone!

    My name is Heidi I'm 29 I live in Ohio on a small farm, just got 4 chickens lavender orpingtons and have a group of 16 chicks coming Monday! I'm very excited. We have had a small farm my whole life and now that I have a daughter of my own we got some chickens for her too!

    Very nice to meet you Heidi, and great that your daughter will grow up around chickens too. I love lavender Orps.
