Hi from Nebraska

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I don't have chickens yet? We are just now building our coop and runs! I am very interested in the silkies especially the blues. I stumbled across BackYardChickens when I was googling info on raising chickens! Some of my other hobbies are crocheting and sewing for my grandchildren. I am the wife of a retired Air Force Officer, the mom of 2 children and Mimi to 3 grandchildren. Before settling in Nebraska, we moved 10 times in 15 years so I'm very happy to be settled and don't plan on ever moving again. I am a former high school history teacher and now I am a wildlife Rehabilitator who specializes in baby squirrels... mainly pinkies who weigh anywhere from 19-25 grams. I am a mom of 6 dogs and one kitty who lives under my porch after someone dumped her here! I hope to learn a lot from this site in order to be a successful chicken mom!!!

Hi welcome to BYC, thats awesome that you are a rehabiltator, there was a lady across the road from my grandpas farm and she did deer, squirrels, opossums, rabbits, and lots of others.

There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around the run.
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

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

There was a person near us that rehabilitated  geese, ducks, pheasants and I forget what else.   Interesting to walk past his property and see what was there.  Welcome to Backyard chickens - hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Hi, and welcome.  As CTKen mentioned, there's a thread about crochet.  The members' projects are worth checking out and if you feel like posting yours, I bet everyone will be interested.
