Hi, my name is Krista and I have Ameraucanas and Marans. I am new to this kind of chicken thing. I mean before we had a variety of Ko Shamo and Thai that were free range and bred and lived as they wanted. Now I am specializing in Ameraucanas and Marans and I need help to be a good breeder. My husband and I ran a Palm Tree business for several years and we have retired from that. Now we want to relax and raise chickens. We also raised 5 children and have 9 grand children. The other "kids" are 2 dogs, Koi and of course all the chickens! I look forward to getting lots of great advice from all of you!
