Im Rachel, I work as a nurse and mom to 2 littles. We bought a house a couple years ago with just over an acre in a small, rural town. I started gardening which some how turned into keeping bees and starting an orchard which has lead to the desire to have chickens. I've ordered 9 chicks from Meyers hatchery for the spring and have been non-stop reading/ studying coops & chickens. We have a 9.5 ft x 14 ft lean-to we plan to convert to a coop. Planning a stationary & a portable run for our girls. Excited and nervous to be chicken owners! Anyway, hi all!
