    My name is Molly, I'm 30 years old. I work as a Librarian at our small, free public library. I'm a mom of 3 boys (ages 10, 3 1/2 and 4 weeks) and we are in the process of designing our first coop! I grew up around chickens (and pigs, horses, and a cow named Bessy) , but haven't had my own as an adult.

    We live in relatively rural Central Vermont on 3 acres. Two of our passions are our organic garden and we also keep bees. We are do-it-yourselfers who are trying to become more self-sufficient and sustainable. I can't wait to get started with our laying hens!

    I'm curious too, do you have goats? I'm hoping to get two this spring or summer to eventually milk. [​IMG]

    No goats yet, although there may be a couple in our future. [​IMG]
    I'm actually a capricorn (the goat with a fish tail), and it's the first part of my email, so for ease of use I tend to stick with it as a username.
