Introducing myself as EllieMa3 which is what my husband nicknamed me when he met me, been married going on 10 years, throat cancer survivor of 9 years, mother of four and have eight grandkids. Actually we started out with goats Nigiran dwarf pgymys, which we now have five and they are my kids too, along with the forty+ chickens. We have Cochins, Bantams, Road island reds, delawares and silkies. We have almost 2 acres to farm on. We tried our hand at gardening, everything turned out good the first but something happened after that nothing would grow. I am also an artist and craftsman, I work with spray paints, acrylics, creating Art out of recycled items such as shoe boxes, plastic lids, metal cans, wood shingles, bottles and many other items. Keeping America Beautiful one piece of trash at a time. I'm still learning all I can about my chickens for I want them healthy and create for them a safe environment. Edited by staff.
