Guest: Kathy Shea Mormino, The Chicken Chick®
Known internationally as The Chicken Chick®, Kathy Shea Mormino shares a fun-loving, informative style to raising backyard chickens. Her practical approach and down-to-earth sense of humor allow her to connect, educate and share an appreciation for chickens as pets with chicken enthusiasts everywhere.
An attorney by trade, backyard chicken-keeper, accidental photographer, fifth generation brown thumb gardener and homicidal horticulturist, Kathy is the founder and one-woman driving force behind her blog The-Chicken-Chick.com and her wildly popular Facebook page and social media network.
Kathy's publication credits include regular contributions to Hobby Farms Chickens and Hobby Farms Home Magazines, among others. Her work can also be found online in blogs published by Mother Earth News Magazine, Grit Magazine and Manna Pro Poultry. Named one of the Top Ten Small Business Facebook Pages of 2012 by the Social Media Examiner, Kathy has become the trusted voice in backyard chicken-keeping and is often sought out for her perspective on chicken-keeping topics by various publications, most notably The Wall Street Journal.
Kathy is a wife and work-at-home mom who balances blogging, writing, crafting and cooking with motherhood of her two little girls and her own flock of over 50 feathered pets and a dog with a "cattitude."
