    Morning,
    Just wondering what everyone does in their spare
    time when not hanging with the peeps? [​IMG]

    My DH is a contractor and I'm a police dispatcher
    (and 911 call taker)
    thus...the weird times when I am logged on

    [​IMG]

    Just curious from what walks of life we are all from
    My entire platoon is animals lovers and curious if theres a pattern

    I am a day care provider (in my home) so I am always here to keep an eye on things. [​IMG] My DH works for the local feed store as a driver. Yea, I love telling him that he owes his job to our chickens! lol [​IMG]

    We have always been animal lovers, and always had a bunch of them. Once we moved out in to the country, it seemed like the next logical move was livestock or poultry! lol

    My DH is retired Air Force, but works in a mold factory. He has the easy job, tool room! LOL I stay at home with the kids( chickens) due to health reasons. Our grandson that lives close comes by to help me in the coops. He told me....cleaning the nest boxes and coop is HIS job. He is 6, this phase wont last long, LOL

    [​IMG] I am a stay at home chicken mom/grandmother.......my hubby is currently off work from injuries suffered when pinned by 2 big old bulls......his second injury in 4 years....his whole life spent as rodeo cowboy/bronc rider/team roper.........beat himself up to the point of no return now [​IMG] so my chickens/horse/dogs/rabbit have full time caretakers....I do landscaping/yard work on the side if I have time. I have spent the last 4 yrs clearing and improving my own 5 acres. I hope to never have to go back into the "outside" work force.but nowadays it sure is hard making it on one persons income.............my chickens are my therapy !
