Good morning, Fellow Chickie-Poo Lovers! I'm so excited to be here. We've rented so long in order to build up my husband's career. Now, we're finally going to buy our own home, which means we can have furry and feathery animals at last. I want two dogs, two cats, and about a bazillion CHICKENS! And also ducks. And guinea fowl. Oh, and maybe a couple of Geese. And one of my daughters is obsessed with Bunny Wabbits. For my fellow Alaskans, we're probably going to buy our home in the Matsu Valley somewhere, although we're looking at Soldotna too. We have four children. I stay home and homeschool half of them and my husband's an airline pilot. I want about 20 Rhode Island Reds, 10 Buff Orpingtons, and 5 Silkies for pets. I like Mallards for the ducks and Pilgrims for the geese and any kind of grayish guinea fowl. I should probably hold off on the geese and guinea fowl until my children are a little older, since they can be a little agressive. So, around here I can say I lay awake imagining how to build the perfect chicken coop and not get laughed at, right?
