Hello! My name is Laura and I am a chicken addict! Have you been following Manna Pro Poultry and wondered, "Who is this lady, anyway?" After several years of managing Manna Pro's poultry products, I thought it was time for me to introduce myself to all the good people who chat with me on the phone, on our facebook page and here on our blog!
It was destiny that I should end up working at Manna Pro. Before I even knew what Manna Pro was, I had decided to get chickens. Heck, I decided to get chickens before I even had a yard to call my own! I used to work in the dog/cat business and one day while searching for something "pet" related, I stumbled across MyPetChicken.com and immediately fell in love. You see, I ADORE eggs. For years I have told people that eggs are easily in my top ten favorite foods - if not my top three (some of my others are spaghetti, cheese, mushrooms, St. Louis style pizza, grits, and pickles in case you were wondering). The thing is, I am also very dedicated to animal welfare and the fact I could never truly "know" that my eggs came from well-treated, happy hens made me rather sad. So once I knew that people keeping their own chickens was a "thing" I was 100% on-board! I even have a diary entry from March of 2009 when I wrote about deciding to get chickens and a list of breeds I was interested in.
