Hi my name is Maria Schenone, but most people know me as Connie. A few years back I use to own a Bake Shop in Mattituck. I had to close it for health reasons. Two years after I closed my Shop, I decided too raise chickens. So I ordered some Rhode Island Reds in April of 2009 twenty-five to be exact. Changed my shed into a chicken coop. Fenced in the area, planted organic grass in the large pen. Ordered organic feed with no soy from a place in Virginia, and waited quite a few months for the chickens to lay eggs. Too sum it up, I now have 79 chickens some roosters too. I also have two pet geese. A gander named Adrian and a goose named Ellie Mae. I have two dogs, Muffin my miniature poodle and Cookie my chiuauha I think that’s how you spell it.
