I grew up on a dairy farm where we had some chickens. I wanted my own girls to enjoy having chickens of their own. We got six hens the end of May. We have 1 Light Brahma, 1 Barred Plymouth Rock, 1 white leghorn, and 3 Rhode Island Reds. Two of our chickens have started laying eggs. Other than raising my girls and chickens, I am an artist and designer. My husband is an arborist and we spend a lot of time outdoors.
