    Hello All,
    [​IMG]

    My name is Rosie, and I have decided it is high time, at the age of 21, to begin raising chickens. I'm home taking care of our 7 month old baby boy, and all of this began with me thinking about eating better food for his sake. It spread to how we think about... just about everything! Hubs and I feel like keeping chickens would be educational for him and us, good for sustainability, and, ~*It Just Warms Our Hearts*~ to be a part of where our food comes from. In this case, that's good eggs!

    We own our own house, and I checked the Code for Grand Prairie, Texas (Our town is adjacent the south-west side of Dallas). All clear!

    Now I just can't wait to start modding my garden shed to be a luxurios, happy home for 3 or 4 hens. I don't know what kind yet, and to be honest, I only know the basics of chicken care at the moment. But I'm learning. Baby slows me down a bit! I do have the materials, though, and as soon as I can find my hammer... [​IMG]

    Anyway, I'm so glad this site is out there, and I hope to make friends with some fellow BYC-ers, especially young moms like myself!
