Hello everyone! My husband and I recently purchased in a semi-rural neighborhood. Being beekeepers, we wanted more space, but should've realized bees would end up being a gateway drug to more things! My father, a city kid, was in the Air Force, and my mother left the farm, so it's odd that I have an affinity for everything agricultural. So now that I finally have my own "farm", I am eagerly (impatiently) awaiting our first 10 chicks. Couldn't decide on a single breed, so ordered sex links and several dual purpose hens. Hopefully, we'll be able to narrow our preferences to 2-3 breeds. No kids, but I'm disabled, so temperament will determine what direction we go in. In the meantime, there's an 8x8 shed to convert into a coop, and runs to fence. I also have an incubator coming tomorrow. If I can get my hands on some hatching eggs...oh man, I'll be in heaven!
