    It began with innocently reading and researching on here wondering if I could possibly raise a few (no more than 6) chickens in our vacant 20ft x 30 ft dog run.

    I bought my first 6 chicks from the Farm Store (2 RIR, 2 White Leghorn, 1 BR and 1 BO) --**look at me I'm already learning the abbreviations [​IMG]. But. . . I really wanted an Ameraucana so I could serve my kids some colored eggs . . . so one week later I bought 6 straight run chicks from a lady about an hour away from me.

    So . . . I've already maxed out my 6x8 coop that we were trying to build, I've been gathering items and trying to build my own bator because I really want to "hatch" some eggs, and now trying to figure out how I'm ever going to convince my husband we need a new coop already! And I'm on this website entirely too much!!!

    Oh, and last week, we received a goat as a birthday "present"?, so we are officially the "Funny Farm"!

    Did I mention I love the word "cackleberry"?!

    Wife to wonderfully patient, and doesn't think I'm COMPLETELY crazy YET, husband--**(OK, so I don't know these abbreviations yet!) [​IMG], mom of 2 and 4 year old, and surrogate mom to 2 dogs, 1 cat, 1 turtle, 1 goat, and 12 chicks so far!
