    1 RIR, 1 not sure(she's white and lays brown eggs, 2 Leghorns, 2 Barred Rocks, 3 Black Australorps, 2 Jersey Giants, 3 banties

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Gardening (vegetable & flower), knitting, bread making

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I am a full-time homemaker and homeschooling mom to 3 precious boys! I am married to the love of my
    life! We have had every type of common pet possible! Right now the only pet we have, other than our chickens,
    is a black Cocker Spaniel named Wally. I grind wheat to make bread for my family and strive to keep our family
    as healthy as possible through eating organic whole foods. I would love to be completely self-sufficient, but right now
    that is only a dream.
