Hello, My name is Holly Ross and I have had 3 chickens for about 6 weeks. I must say that I never thought I would be raising chickens, but life is full of surprises. I am very happily married to my husband, Tony, of 16 years, I have four awesome kids- 3 girls- 15,13, and 9 and one boy- 7. My father-in-law has kept me in fresh eggs for years, but I deciced I needed some chickens for organic pest control and fertilizer. My chickens are free range. I am so smitten by the funny birds that I have placed my first order for 26 Ameraucanas ( yes, I know from a hatchery these are not fool bloods, just Easter Eggers). I have learned so much from this site already, thanks a bunch.
