Hi! I am Jackie. I live in central new york. Been married to Scott for 33 years. We have 4 boys, who still live with us. Yay I have been wanting to raise chickens for YEARS! However, i couldnt motivate Scott to build me a coop. So....when honey went out of town, i ran to the local agway store and bought my first flock of 6 2week old hens. Surprise!!!!! They are currently brooding in my bedroom, in a 45 gallon tote with all the amenities. I waited til the day before Scott was due to fly home before i texted him the news...lol. (Cowardly, i know) I am very excited about this new venture, the girls are doing well, although i am overprotective, which is why, i suppose, that my boys wont leave the nest either! Anyway, I finally have the motivation for Scott to build me a coop! Which he will start, if he can ever get home since his flight was cancelled last night, and he wont be home til tomorrow night. I hope.
