This will be my second batch of chickens (my husband and I had a little mishap with some predators last year so this year they will be much safer!) We are planning on getting four chicks... and by four I mean six. Maybe eight? I keep on forgetting the breed names, but I know I'm getting a Barred Rock, a Brahma, and not sure what else! My friend Hannah introduced me to Backyard Chickens - Hi Hannah!! So excited to be here! I am a full time school teacher - I teach first grade right now and would love to one day hatch little chickies with my students! I am married to a great guy named John, he's a firefighter in our area. We adopted a ten year old cat and named her Nancy... she immediately had to have 11 teeth pulled. Oh well We plan on getting a puppy this summer and am excited to introduce them to the chickens! We live in a somewhat rural, somewhat residential neighborhood, so I am planning to make a full garden area, keep chickens, and maybe a goat? Who knows! So excited to share chicken tips and tricks!
