    hello, i'm Becca

    I'm from a farm north of omaha, not born into farming, my parents are city folk and i was too, until my first horse at age 10 and it snowballed from there. my parents purchased the land i live on about 5 years ago and i have a small house attached to a barn on 10 acres.

    i am not new to chickens, but i am always looking to learn!!

    right now i have 4 chickens, all hatchery birds. i did have more, but had a red-tailed hawk problem and currently my birds are free-range with no coop, just the barn to roost in. my bf and i plan on purchasing a coop and building a run. my birds are a mix, lol, i have a buff orpington hen, easter egger hen, california white hen and a BBR game rooster that i got from the local humane society. i also have 8 blue swedish ducks, 4 hens and 4 drakes.

    my other hobbies are my son (2.5), my job (veterinary technician) and my other farm animals: horses and nubian goats. i foxhunt and trail ride. i have 5 horses. i show my nubians at ADGA shows all over the midwest and i have 11 goats currently, with 7 of those being bred does that will start kidding in jan.

    can't wait to meet some great people who loves animals, "farming" and we can chat about our pets!!

    Howdy FarmGirl! I'm new here as well and I can't wait to meet some knowlegeable famers such as yourself!
    I am a city boy and have been my whole life... But I'm tired of eating genetically modified foods (GMO's) and animals raised on GMO's... So I've decided to take matters into my own hands!
    I'm planting a whole bunch of backyard and rooftop gardens this spring, and growing some chicken meat!

    Pleased to meet ya!
