Hello All! My name is Courtney and I reside not far from the banks of Lake Erie in Northwestern Ohio! I grew up on a farm with all kinds of animals-- lambs, pigs, cattle, a few chickens, goats, cats and dogs! Once we even had a pony for a while! Anyhow-- now I am married and have three little boys and we live in a little neighborhood so about all I can get away with is a huge garden and some chickens! I have wanted chickens for a few years and I have just now really talked my husband into it! My chicks (3 Rhode Island Red & 3 Silver Laced Wyandotte) are ordered and due for hatch on March 20th! and the Coop plans are drawn up! My husband is a carpenter so he is going to begin building it this week! I love the site--- I have been browsing for months but have finally paused long enough to join! I look forward to getting to know ALL OF YOU!! Thanks!
