Hello from Smalltown Nevada

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hey all, 

Well, I am indeed a newbie. Not only to this site but to chickens in general. 

My husband and I are newly retired to the Country. Little ol Fallon, NV. About an hour outside of Reno. 

My husband was in the Army up until 4 years ago when he was injured in Afghanistan and was medically retired. I retired from being an interior designer to take care of Hubby. I had horses when I was young but more suburbian horse owning. LOL. 

We have literally our first house after many years of moving that we have been renovating the last 2 years. I have always, since a child, wanted chickens! 

Today we adopted 3 girls from our neighbor who unfortunately is moving. 

So here I am, looking to learn as much as possible so I have happy babies.

:welcome  Welcome and thanks to you and your hubby for serving in the Army! (I always thank the family too, it's a whole family sacrifice!)

 

Be sure to check out the learning center and read, read, read!  That has saved my bacon more than once!  Along with all the super friendly BYC'ers here!

Welcome to BYC!

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
