Hello there! My name is Essence. I am a 24 year old Wyoming girl, born and raised there, and planning on staying! So when I was little, probably 4-5, I stayed with my grandparents for around 6 months when my parents we're overseas. They had a flock of chickens, i think 20-21 hens and a rooster or two. They we're all so friendly, even the roosters! When i helped my Grandma clean the chicken coop and feed them they all ran up to us and we're so friendly! They let me hold them and even pet them, they we're so tame, they also layed these perfect small brown eggs all year around, almost every single day! they we're delicious. I was happy to see my parents, but I was sad to say goodbye to my grandparents and their chickens, but I got to stay for two months each year until I was 14, when my grandparents passed away. All of their chickens had died from old age, one of them had gotten snatched up by a dog, but the rest died of old age, so they had gotten four more hens to keep eggs for breakfast, after they passed away I was given the hens to take care of, they were so sweet, they we're very friendly and liked everyone. They passed away within a few weeks of each other last year, they we're all 10-11 years old. I'm seriously considering getting some chicks to raise myself now, and wanted to come learn before I jump into something, so here I am! Ready to learn and hopefully get some chickens soon! I would love to meet some people, and make some new friends!
