Hi Everyone! My name is Jodie and I am married to a really terrific guy named Gary. Between us we have 1 Son & 1 Daughter grown and moved out and we have 3 daughters still at home. I'm currently attending college full-time to become an Elem School Teacher.

Our pet family is: a cat named Puss (ya I know but it fits), 2 Coatimundi named Jethro & Abby and a Great Dane named Allie Mae.

We moved from Tucson, AZ to Whiteville, TN in January of 2009. Its between Memphis and Jackson. We bought a house out in the country so the kids and animals would have room to roam. Currently looking for more acreage. We also decided that we want to raise chickens and that's what led us to the BYC website. We have learned so much from this site and yes they are right when they say its addictive. We currently have Buff Orpington, French Black Copper Marans, Olive Eggers and Amerucana's. We also have a pair of Toulouse Geese and a few guineas. Email me at [email protected] for more information.
