Hello My name is Rosie and I am currently deployed in Djibouti Africa until June. I have recently purchased 6 acres of land high in the Rocky Mountains of Alamosa, CO and I am supper excited about it . I will be coming to visit my land in July when we are on block leave. I will not officially be living on my land until the end of my contract with the Army in April 2016. So I plan to come and visit my land every chance I get and start building my home and farm. I have never had my own land or farm, so this will be a new adventure for me but it has always been a dream of mines. I am currently attending Oregon State University and persuing my Bachelors of Science in Agricultural Science with a minor in Horticulture and I am also attending Ashworth College to get my career degree in Veterinary Assistant. So I am very busy being a Soldier, Student and full-time mom to my 13 year old daughter. I was hoping to meet some fellow BackYardies that are in Colorado or in the Alamosa area that can give me a few pointers about raising Chickens in the that part of the region. I look forward to hearing from you.
