    Hello everyone!

    My name is Carrie. I'm a first time home buyer that has always wanted a few yardbirds for eggs and entertainment. The house I'm buying already had a nice coop in the backyard! It was fate. :)

    I just added a Dominique chick, Nugget, and a duckling, to-be-named, to my little family.
    They have their coop (which is a nice sized storage shed of sorts with a nice tin roof and two windows) and a little 5x5 fenced in area for roaming when I'm outside with them.
    When they get older (and larger) they'll have the whole backyard.

    As you can see, I'm overly excited about my new hobby. I am also excited to be a part of this group. I've already poked around and you all have some great tips!

    I look forward to visiting with you all!
