    Weather's been great here lately, should be this week too! Great coop building weather. [​IMG] Thought I'd share some things about me. I'm new to chicken raising, the handful of chicks I got on Sunday are my first. I bought 6 total: I have two Silver Lace Wyandottes, a NH red, an ISA red, a black sexlink & a white leghorn. Nothing too fancy, but I already love them! All are pullets except the Wyandottes, I'm not sure on those two. I stumbled upon this great, awesome, information website last week when I was doing chicken research and I've been pretty much obsessed ever since!! All the information I've been finding and reading here has been so helpful, and I thank everyone who's posts I've read!!

    Currently, I live w/my boyfriend out in a rural area with our dog and cat. We live right next door to a horse farm (they also have longhorns) and I love hearing them in the morning. I want some of my own some day, but we don't have enough room (or money) right now for that type of adventure. So I'm starting small, with chickens!! I also have a small garden that I enjoy and have been trying to devise a good chicken-proof fence to protect it, thanks to all my reading here. :) Some hobbies of mine are also cooking, reading, crocheting, being generally crafty and enjoying the outdoors...we love camping!!

    Right now I work for a collections agency (its awful) but I decided a couple years ago to go back to college and I am now 3 months away from graduating as a veterinary technician! I obviously have a love for animals, if you hadn't noticed before I said that, haha. So that'll be exciting, I'm looking forward to getting a new job, and hopefully very quickly.

    I love this site and hope to make a bunch of new friends here, and learn lots of new things about chickens and continue getting great advise from everyone. Thanks for welcoming me to the family!! [​IMG]
