Hello everyone, my name is Francesca and live in Spokane, WA. I have been married for 30 years, 3 children (all grown) and 2 grandchildren. When I was a child in Italy my mother had a simple cage on the balcony with 2 chickens, I loved having them. After marrying my husband I moved in US I always wanted chickens but we lived for long time in Phoenix and the kids, the job, life, the heat....... You know.. Four years ago we decided to come back to Spokane were my husband is from and I finally have a home where I have space for my garden and now my Chickens!!!! So I did the first step, an opportunity allowed me to buy a cute chicken coop for $60 I just got it today! As much as I would like to get the chickens right away I have decided to wait until spring and use the time to learn how to care for them, feed them.... So here I am I have already seen so much information but I am going to need lot of help! Thank you for letting me join.
