Hello, My name is Li. My husband and two girls are buying a home on three acres. Starting in the spring with chicks I plan to ease myself slowly into the role of Ma Wilder. Eventually I dream of chickens for both eggs and meat, a mini or Dorset cow and our pony. And quail. Knowing not the first thing about chickens, except that they taste great, I turn to the expertise at BackYardChickens to guide me. May it be a fairly stress free, hilarious ride! I was referred here from a parenting forum I frequent. I hope maybe I'll recognize some mamas here.
