    hello! I’m Jessica and new to this forum but not new to chickens. We have had pet chickens for 7 years now and we love them! We have 14 chickens, 20 ducks and 2 Chinese swan geese. Most of them are rescues. We have various breeds of chickens including buff orpingtons, austrilorps, Rhode Island Red, and jersey giants.
    We are located north of chicago in Illinois.
