Excited to meet you! :)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone!

 

I'm joining this community as I'm about to start raising my own chickens for eggs! I'm moving to a house which has an already built coop, so I'm putting it to use. I wanted to join because I'm compiling some information to refer to as I begin this adventure. Just know that while I have been doing research, I have no real-life experience yet and definitely have a lot to learn.

 

A little about me: I'm 20 years old, born and raised in Western Washington. Not right in the Seattle area but very close. I go to college, studying to become a Nuclear Medicine Technologist. I currently have 2 indoor cats (they will NOT be around any future chickens!).

 

I have a yard for the first time since I was a young child, and I'm really eager to begin this process. I'll need to build a designated fenced in area for my chickens, as my yard is not totally fenced and I'm not really interested in allowing the chickens to rip up my entire yard anyway. I will be working with my city's rules when it comes to keeping chickens so I'll only be having three egg layers.

 

Anyway, I look forward to meeting some of you more experienced owners, hopefully some of you can grace me with some tips and advice. :D

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
