So I was born and raised in London England! Yes the big famous city. Now I live in a tiny Town in the middle of nowhere Idaho with less than 2000 people and I don't even live in the town part! There were more than 2000 people in my school back in England! Anyway I moved here 7 years ago and I love it, I don't miss city living at all. I've been thinking about chickens for a long time and finally really started researching a few weeks ago. I got 2 ameraucana and 2 ducklings which I think are buff orpington but who knows? And after I get back from vacation I have 16 more chicks coming! A mixture of Rhode island red and ameraucana. I've had fun building a run and coop and I'm loving this website for all my questions!

Oh I did the same thing, kind of...

Born and raised in the big city of S.F., hated all the smog and dumb people. Picked up and moved to Spokane, WA in 2015. Bought an old 100 year old home with huge backyard ( as Californai standards go....:). Grow my own veggies and fruits now and starting this spring will start keeping chickens!

Congratulations on your adventure!
