    hello, I'm TJ, my family raised poultry when I was growing up. so I'm not actually new, but I've been away from it for close to 15 years, and just got chickens and ducks of my own about a month ago.

    The chickens seem to be doing really well, the ducks?? not so much....

    but anyway, in addition to 7 chickens, and a questionable number of ducks, we also have 3 cats, and 2 dogs. and vegetable seedlings that I'm trying to get outside if only it would stop freezing at night...

    we is myself, I'm 34, and my fiance, he is 26.

    We live in New Hampshire, and this is our first spring here. we originally hailed from western washington state.

    hope to get to know you guys :)
