    Hello everyone my name is Amanda I'm a SAHM to three incredible children from Ontario Canada. After 2yrs of justifying why we should have chickens my husband has finally agreed. We have started with only 4 that were given to us by a family friend. I'm very happy to be in this group. A lot of the searches I have done online bring me here.
