*waves* Hello all! I'm so happy to be here...here on the forums and here on our newly purchased hobby farm. I've been shopping for a hobby farm (I make no bones about it, DH was dragged along, lol) now for about two years..had to have all the right bits see! Needed land, cleared and forested, needed barns...oh right and needed a house with plumbing and electricity, at least so said DH So needless to say, as the hunt for the 'perfect' property wore on, my plans were brewing! There are SO many things I want to do *drifts for a moment in contemplation* oh! and chickens were the first. I knew that was going to be tricky seeing as we moved in the beginning of august, but a DF offered a few mature hens to start out my flock. Labor day weekend we finally got most of the coop built, waiting to finish up insulating and roofing still. I think we should have chickens in the coop in a few weeks! Anyway, thats the start of my plans, I can't wait!
