    My mom has raised chickens my whole life. So coincidently I've had them a majority of my life as a result.

    I didn't have dolls growing up, I had brahma hens, that I dressed in aprons and bonnets and pushed in strollers. Way better!

    My husband and I newly purchased my great grandmothers farm and are now adding chickens to Villa Rose Acres. We purchased show stalk Silkies and hope to get out and about as soon as they lift the ban.

    Look forward to visiting with all of you!

    [​IMG] LOL super funny. Chickens do beat dolls any day in my opinion--they've never yet made a doll that lays eggs [​IMG] Hope you have good success with your chickens! See you around the forums :)

    It would be fun to see your birds if you care to share a picture!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. A lot of us were lurkers before joining. :eek:) The first breed I ever had were Brahmas (50 years ago), and they were gentle giants. If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    This taken whilst transitioning to separate quarters. The clean ones are 3 month old pullets, and the other is a 9 month old with a peculiar obsession of head dunking... sigh

    I'm having issues getting any of the other pics to download, getting them on here is a bit of a process.
