    Hello,

    My name is Carrie, I live in Northern Utah with a husband, two children (if you don't count the 30 sixth graders I teach), two dogs, and two hives of bees. We are interested in starting a small flock of layers in our suburban back yard this year so I have started doing some research and came across this site. I'm looking forward to learning a lot!
