Hi there! I'm in the research phase of my chicken career. I don't have any chickie babies yet but have been lurking around here for months, coveting pictures & reading everything I can find on the interweb so I can be prepared. I have 3 teenagers, the best hubby a girl could ask for, Lucy the rottweiler (princess), Tess the chihuahua (mob boss) & Ooda the kitten (tweaker). The hubby & I are in the process of buying a small farm (just shy of 4 acres) in unincorporated Pierce County, WA. I. Can. Not. Wait. Seriously, it's painful ha! I'll thank you all in advance for your patience with stupid questions from another overly enthusiastic newbie Have an awesome day!
