hi there. i thought i'd introduce myself, i have been reading the forums for a while but thought it was time to make my own account. I am Jacqueline, i have a 5 year old daughter and a 2 year old son. we have 2 easter eggers, a cuckoo maran, and a blue andalusian free ranging in our yard, and 3 new additions inside in a brooder- 2 light brahmas and 1 silver laced wyandotte (they are about 2.5 weeks old). i look forward to gaining knowledge from this group.
