    Hey hey! My name is Rachel, and I'm from Jacksonville, FL. My neighbour, her dad, and I are getting chickens for our first time and I'm so excited! The coop will be going in my backyard, which is being built by her dad. I've wanted chickens for a while just because they are awesome animals and we want to have our own eggs so we know where they come from. My neighbour and I are both vegetarian so we will not be raising them as meat. Anyways, I'm super excited and can't wait to get our chicks! Is anyone else from the Jacksonville area? [​IMG][​IMG]

    Jacksonville Fl.?! Years..and years..and years ago...lol... I lived in Fernandina Beach Fl. It was so beautiful back in the 60's! Not so many people. I see that it has grown quite a bit out there.

    Go type in Florida in the search bar, you will see who is close by in your state!

    I still miss the beach!
