Hey everyone! My name's Maeve and I'm the proud owner of four two and a half week old chicks. I own a Buff Orphington (Zinnia), a Red Star (Paprika), a Rhode Island Red (Strega Nona), and a Barred Plymouth Rock (Pitty Pat). All four are lovely little hens. I joined mostly to get as much advise as I can in raising my baby girls, and to connect with fellow chicken lovers since everyone at school thinks I'm either insane or epic because of my happy hen house. I live in a nice suburban town of Massachusetts and attend the public high school there. I play volleyball and basketball, and am usually overloaded with school work and social drama. This looks like a lovely site and I'm sure it will be very helpful.
