    I'm Emily! I keep coming across this site when I'm looking for answers to Flock Problems, so I figured it's about time I joined and started contributing to the discussion.

    I grew up on a farm with a decent-sized flock of chickens (and the occasional duck, goose, or turkey), and I've been keeping my own flock for about a year now. I have two Black Copper Marans, one New Hampshire Red of laying age, and three New Hampshire Reds who ought to start laying any day now. Eventually (when we get some land) I'm hoping to raise some meat birds on pasture--from my experience processing roosters at home, that is not a project I want to do on a backyard scale.

    As far as other hobbies go, I do my best to find non-garden time for fishing, hunting, and pretending to be a Dressage Queen. I keep insisting to "city people" that I don't actually live on a farm, but with my horse boarded next door and with about 1000 square feet of my suburban lot devoted to either veggies or chickens, it's hard to convince them. When I'm not working in my garden or at the barn (or, you know, just staring at my cucumber patch laughing maniacally at what I've done), I work as a freelance writer and novelist. Lately, I can't stop writing rockabilly lyrics--so if you have a Gretsch or similar and live in the Denver area, I guess come over and jam with me and the hubby?

    Anyhow, it looks like I'm nearing the end of my Not Paying Attention to a Husky Time, so I'd better wrap it up: nice to meet you all, glad to join up with such a helpful bunch of conversationalists, and looking forward to clucking around with everybody here! Feel free to ask me questions or message me or whatever. I'm friendly and slow-moving.
