    Hey there, my name is Taryn. I just moved to southern Missouri from the upper peninsula of Michigan. Big change! I'm getting my first chickens this weekend after discovering that the previous owners of our new house left a very nice chicken coop. I've always wanted chickens so I'm very excited.
    My husband and I have a 2 year old son (he calls me Captain mama, hence the nickname) and we are expecting #2 in February. We find out the gender in a few weeks :) We are hoping for another boy but I wouldn't mind having another girl on my side either ;)
    I'm sure I will have a lot of questions as this is my first time owning chickens so you'll be seeing me around. Hope everyone has a great day! :)

    Hi :welcome Taryn

    Glad you could join the flock! How exciting for you and your family to be getting your chicken adventures under way this weekend :clap What breed/s are you starting out with? Wishing you the very best of luck for the future with your new birds and baby #2!! Having one baby was enough of an experience for me and his Dad so we stuck to just the one. Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow
