    Hey all,
    Well, I am indeed a newbie. Not only to this site but to chickens in general.
    My husband and I are newly retired to the Country. Little ol Fallon, NV. About an hour outside of Reno.
    My husband was in the Army up until 4 years ago when he was injured in Afghanistan and was medically retired. I retired from being an interior designer to take care of Hubby. I had horses when I was young but more suburbian horse owning. LOL.
    We have literally our first house after many years of moving that we have been renovating the last 2 years. I have always, since a child, wanted chickens!
    Today we adopted 3 girls from our neighbor who unfortunately is moving.
    So here I am, looking to learn as much as possible so I have happy babies.
