  About Me

Hello!! My name is Claudia. It was around 1980 that I begged my Daddy for a trio of mutt chickens from a man who lived in the back woods of Alabama named Woodroe Wilson. I brought them home and there was never a fancy waterer, feeder, nest boxes, or a barn. Not even a book to read about them. They roosted in the pines behind our house and layed their eggs in a broken down bus. Momma hated them and Daddy did keep me some cracked corn for me to throw at them every day before and after school. (I was the type of girl that had to wipe her shoes off in the grass before running to catch the bus for school.) Those chickens taught me alot. Maybe I couldn't talk genetics, or incubators, or anything about the breeds in the U.K. but I spent every afternoon and whole summers studying chickens.

Almost 30 years after my first chicken, I am still studying chicken behaviors, yeah, there was a gap in time when I didn't have them. But I'm back. And I now have a real hen house, real purchased chicken feeders and waterers, and the wide world web to teach me so much I didn't know. But the absolute best part of owning chickens.....is still sitting down every afternoon and watching them...with my family.
