IT Geek, raised in Alaska but spent 20 years in Seattle, who bought a small acreage in the middle of Oklahoma, living with a dog lady who has worked with them professionally as a family thing. Her grandparents did it.
Last weekend I woke up something fowl. Grumpy beyond normal compare. That Saturday afternoon, I somehow came home with 12 chicks, and all the stuff we needed to run a brooder.
We have been reading and planning on chickens for 3 years now, but never had the thoughts take flight until now.
Decided I should make an account after reading all 50+ pages of the Woods Coop, and 37 pages of the Angry Rooster.
Even with all the reading, expect lots of "newbie" questions as we progress into the world of chickens.
