    Hi, everyone,
    I am a city girl who is soon2Bcountrygirl, thus my title...I just had to join after reading WriterofWords' Nugget the rooster story!! Laughed till I cried, I did! You all seem to be a fun group and I will need some help soon when my husband and I move onto the 4 acres we bought last year. I've been involved with animals all my life (no human children, just fur children) - domestic rabbits, dogs, cats...and I've been a satellite squirrel rehabber for a local wildlife center for about 2 years raising and rehabbing orphaned eastern gray squirrels. Am a retired elementary teacher, now run a small sewing business sewing home furnishings. When we move, I'd like to have a couple of goats, a few chickens, maybe a donkey, more dogs, etc. It's my dream, as I've always lived in a city. Am a southern girl, live in Alabama. Any other Alabamians?
    Thanks for such a friendly forum and look forward to talking with you all!

    Hi there! It's always nice to meet a fellow newbie like myself. What part of AL are you in? You don't have to tell if you don't want to though. [​IMG] Just curious because my brother & his family live in Albertville. [​IMG]

    Welcome soon2b! I'm a city girl as well and we just moved to our 2 acre home 1week ago and I'm as excited as you to start our little "farm"! I'm addicted to this site and I don't even have chickens yet, but I know when I get them I'll be ready! Forgot to mention that I was soo excited the 1st day we moved in I saw a beautiful white cat in the yard, he ran from me but I put out some food and he's been back each day and will let us pet him. Come to find out from the neighbors that he's a local Tom around here and the people who lived here before us always fed him so he's just "home"! I couldn't be more thrilled to already have an animal around, makes live more enjoyable!
