About your host

I have loved animals for my whole life, but became a chicken enthusiast when our school hatched them from eggs in the classroom. Three of them moved home with us at the end of the school year. We adopted them for the children's benefit and fell in love. I've been raising backyard chickens for almost a decade, we have added to our flock over the years and learned a lot along the way.
