I have the most wonderful husband in the world who built me an awesome chicken coop. I have 4 dogs - 2 St Bernards and 2 mutt-shepherds. I have the fattest cat in the county...19 lbs. And of course, my 19 chickens. We live on 2 1/4 acres of land in the Mojave Desert of Southern California. I am a country girl at heart who was stolen away from Kansas at infancy and forced to grow up in, and now cant seem to be able to leave - this God-forsaken state. I believe Heaven will have the weather of the West Coast, and the life style and beauty of the mid-west.
