How long have you owned chickens?

Ten years.

How many chickens do you own?

I have ten chickens right now.

What breed of chickens do you own?

Speckled Sussex, Silver Laced Wyandottes and Brahmas. I'd like some Blue Andalusians too. A predator got my last one in early spring.

What do you like most about owning chickens?

Sitting in the back yard and watching them graze and collecting eggs.

How many people (other than yourself) have you helped get started owning chickens?

Three other families. I will be setting up another family with a chicken tracktor and breeding pair of birds in July.


I have been raising endangered breeds of chickens for several years now. Last year predators got the last of my flock, so I started over this spring. Hope to start getting eggs by fall.

What Julie is saying about this Meetup Group

I met many people I want to get more aquatinted with. It's great to be with people I have so much in common with.
