    I am a stay at home mom of six great kids and needed a hobby we could all enjoy or one just I could do to forget about it all. We were given 7 chicks and 6 turkeys from a friend and the rest is history. We raised the turkeys for Thanksgiving and two of the dressed out over 38 pounds ( a bit overfeed) and we ended up with 3 roosters so in July we got 4 more egg layers and then again in October we got 7 more egg layers. We love collecting the eggs and having them in the backyard living life with us. We also decided to raise 25 broiler chicks for meat and we"ll see how that turns out in a couple of weeks! I love my chickens.....

    "stay at home mom in the city with a heart for the country," would make a fabulous title for a country & western ballad. There you go - how is your singing voice?
