    Hi all!
    I've been frequenting this site for months, but it wasn't until today that I finally decided to sign up. I'm a huge animal lover with two dogs, two cats and a snake. I moved to Apopka this summer and decided it was finally time to get some chickens! Five beautiful hens (hopefully--one might be a roo, but time will tell) were added to our family in August. They are:
    Ginny (Blue Laced Red Wyndotte)
    Gidget (Hamburg)
    Gertie (Black Copper Marans)
    Gwen (Barred Rock)
    Gigi (Silkie Bantam)

    They haven't started laying yet, and I still have a great deal to learn, but chilling with my girls has become the highlight of my day and I'm pretty sure I'll never be chickenless again.

    I'm also a pescatarian meaning I don't eat meat other than fish, so my chickens will certainly have long and happy lives.

    Nice to meet you all!
