So happy to have found BYC! It's interesting reading about the different breeds of chickens and their history. I'm also amazed at their different patterns and colors. Introduction: My name is Amanda. I'm married to the love of my life, and I'm a homeschool mom of 3 beautiful children. We have a loving German Wire-haired Pointer named Molly, 5 sweet White Leghorn hens (2 yrs old),14 White Leghorn chicks, and 1 extremely social white Easter Egger chick. Raising chickens has been a joy for our family!
