My name is Amber. I am a single mom of 4 kids and a 4 yr old kitty Jazzy. I have never had Chickens but my kids and I have been interested in byc's for @ few years now. Well our chance is finally here! I am in the process of putting a contract on a house. So not only am I a first time home buyer, but a first time cooper! After seeing the house, I already have my coop plan laid out. I know exactly where its going and how I am going to do it!! The house sits on a huge lawn so my chickies will get free run whenever we are home. We spend most of our time outdoors.

Next I need to start planning my garden. I realize as with any pet, there are good and bad plants so I will be looking around here to see what I can have in my veggie/herb patch.

I am so excited. Since there are 5 of us in my family, we are going to have 5 chickies.. (the limit here anyways.. it wasnfate!) A baby for each of us.

My skinned babies.. I have 2 girls 14 and 11 and two boys 7 and 2.

Im glad to be here!

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
