About Us
Welcome to FURS FEATHERS LLC.

A little history about us....

I grew up with a love for animals, have had animals my entire life.
Raised growing up with dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and horses. I got my first horse when I was 3 and have been riding ever since, up till starting our family. Originally wanted a career in veterinary medicine; however changed my mind once I started learning about Guide Dogs For The Blind, Inc. What a great organization. Helping others to better their lives. Well I ended up working there for 13 awesome years; becoming a licensed guide dog instructor. Loved this place; however, my life changed and I met this awesome guy named Darin. Who I fell in love with, married and started a family. None of this would be possible if it was not for him.
So several years down the road, I am now a stay at home mom with three awesome children. They are a little older than in this picture. We live out on a farm in Aurora OR, raise rabbits, chickens and ducks. I spend my time taking care of my kids, gardening and doing animal chores. Oh we also have a really funny Boxer and two silly cats. I have also taken up a love for canning.

Practices
A little about the Cornish cross... It is basically two selected birds bred to together to get the best eating bird. A bird that likes to eat bred to a fast growing bird makes the best broiler. They commonly don't get around very well because they are fast growing, hence are subject to health problems. Ours however seemed to thrive in our chicken tractor we built. We moved the tractor every 2 days, giving them fresh grass to graze on as well as a clean environment, 2 times daily fresh water and a never ending supply of feed.
