After dreaming and talking of owning chickens for the last few years, I finally placed my order of new chicks last week!! They will be arriving in April, so I have been reading as much information as I can get my hands on about building a coop and run, about brooding and anything else that catches my eye. And if that isn't enough, we just rescued a Chihuahua mama and a pup about 3 days before Christmas. Add them to our other 3 dogs plus the 3 rescued guinea pigs and the pet snake, I guess you could say I already have a mini-menagerie!! Oh, and did I mentioned that I am trying to clean out a 40-year old barn to convert into a little shop where I can sell my hand-painted furniture and other upcycled items?? By 4:30 p.m. I hear a glass of wine calling my name Hello to all. Can't wait to start sharing chicken gossip stories with everyone!!
