I am Melody and my husband Bill & I have just stared raising our own chickens after we lost our beloved lone hen Consuela. I am a nurse and esthetician/makeup artist and my husband is a quality control engineer. We love animals-especially rescues and currently have 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 rabbits, a fish tank with fish and an aquatic frog, 2 Muscovy ducklings and 13 chickens-a mix of everything including 2 show quality Malaysian Seramas that were a gift to me from Consuela's chicken vet. Love this site! so much useful info and friendly people!!!
