Thank you for accepting my membership! I've had chickens for about 2 years now. I got them mainly for eggs. Now, it doesn't matter if they lay or not! I have 2 Americaunas that haven't laid in months. I only have 3 chickens. 2 Americaunas and 1 black Australorp. All 3 are hens and will be 2 years old, this May. I also have a dog that is 7 years old. I am retired and live in Florida. I've been married for 29 years and have 3 children, 9 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. We're expecting a third great grandchild in about 3 months! We love love love our chickens too! I look forward to getting to know more chicken families!
