Hi! I recently joined after watching for a while. I have really enjoyed reading all the posts. This seems like a true family atmosphere. When I was growing up we raised anything my Dad could get his hands on. We had chickens, geese, ducks, cows, pigs, horses - we even had peacocks and emus for a while. I have missed having animals around. We finally moved onto our 4 1/2 acres at the end of last year. I am dying to get started on my own coop and have my own chickens.
