    I live in a small town in wisconsin. I like animals and horror movies.

    I garden- the house I'm live in now has as much of the yard as possible devoted to being gardened without it being legally a farm. I'm also going to be trying out hydroponic gardening this year too!
    I also cook, a lot, thats partly why I garden- so I have all sorts of fresh things to cook as often as I need them with out having to spend a bunch of money.

    I'm pretty friendly and I try to be easy to talk to.

    right now I only have the little tiel that you see in my profile pic: Bogie. I may soon have some barnyard birdies though I'm still looking into whats the best kind for what I need/my situation allows. :3 Which is what brought me here!

    I do have a neighbor however, down the road somewhere, who seems to have an exceptionally loud rooster. I keep meaning to track it down and ask about it, but I never do. XD and I live a few blocks away from a little turkey farm, they're always getting out and running amok in the church yard/graveyard thats next door to it. its pretty fun to watch.

    If you decide to get chickens, Murray McMurray has an excellent "chick selector" tool at https://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/chick_selector.html to help you choose which breed is best for you. Just be sure and click on "show more characteristics." Good luck in getting your flock.
