I am a total chicken newbie despite my husband referring to me as Chicken Lady. We have 16 chicks coming in a few weeks and 9 eggs after that we will try to hatch. My husband and I, along with our kids age 5 and 9, just bought 108 acres in Greenwood, SC. We *inherited* 7 unruly goats, two donkeys and a mule with the property. We hope to build our home out on the farm over the next year. Right now it's just pastures and ponds! I'd love to connect with some other animal & chicken lovers in my area. Before two weeks ago, all we knew was dogs and cats. We're in a huge learning curve!
