    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 [​IMG]

    Have an awesome day!

    Holy cats! You guys are awesome! I belong to a few other forums (fishing, VW's, motorcycles) and they aren't nearly as welcoming. Usually the newb's have to stand in the corner for a year before speaking without getting throttled HA!

    I'm REALLY excited to be apart of your community & soak up everything I can!
