Hi, My name is Ithiel Catiri, I live in Amana Ia with my wonderful wife Jenise and our two cats Strider and Walter. I was involved in raising chickens since I was 6 to about 28 when we moved and had to get rid of them, now we can keep them in town and I plan on building coop and getting Brahmas and Houdans in the spring. I will have to make a small pen as I just got 8 serama eggs in the mail to day from MI-MI and will put them in incubator to morrow with 18 I got from Texas. Other interests of mine include rock and fossil hunting, winterhardy cactus, caudisaforms, everything else. We own a retail rock shop (azulworldtreasure.com) and an Art Gallery (catiriartoasis.com) I found this site by looking at pics of chicks on Google and can't keep away. I have looked at various threads and finally became a member so I could order eggs. Happy to be back into chickens!
