    Hi! I've been lurking here for the past couple of months and thought that I'd make it official. [​IMG]
    My name is Laura and I live in southeastern Michigan. I just got six ISA Brown chicks in May. They're thriving and growing and provide me with at least one chuckle a day. We've gotten ducks in the past and I had chickens as a teenager, but this was my first time raising chicks.

    I found BackYardChickens.com when I was searching for answers to some of my early questions when the chicks were tiny. I kept coming back to learn more, find some answers and learn about the breed.

    I live in a somewhat rural area. We have 15 acres all together, but live on a busy road. My husband and I own and operate a water well drilling company, our kids are grown and one has left the nest. We have two Lab mix dogs and an indoor cat (the chickens have a fenced in yard). I love to read, write and do a little needlework. I love to walk in our woods when the mosquitoes and deerfly aren't attacking. My family means everything to me.
