Hi everyone! My name is Racheal and I’ve been lurking as a guest for quite a few months. I have 4 children 19, (almost)18, 8 & 7, 5 dogs, 1 cat and am currently a new mother hen to 8 Buff Orpington chicks who are “1-2 weeks old.” We live in a rural area of east central Missouri. I love animals (obviously), writing, reading, hot working glass and learning new things. I guess that’s a good thing because I’m going to have to learn how to build a coop I look forward to meeting ya’ll.
