    HI! My name is Emily and I'm from Burnsville Indiana, population 30 people, 30 chickens, 2 cows, 12 dogs, 30 goldfish, 2 bunnies, and 2 exceptionally well behaved seniors. I have had chickens since 2010 and have been all over this website reading just about everything I could get my hands on. I am only 21, so I'm a pretty young bird keeper I suppose. Most of the chicken owners (if you aren't in 4H that is) are a little bit older than I am.

    Mostly, I sell eggs. Lots of eggs. Then I eat my birds of course, old school farmer girl here that doesn't feed something that doesn't give me something. My first bunch of hens were Rhodies but now I have a funny assortment of birds (1 Rhodie Rooster, a few bantams, a silver laced Wyandotte, buff Orpingtons, sex links, and crosses of all kings). My chicken coop was actually my senior project here in Indiana so I could graduate from High School and now has turned into quite the adventure. We are actually getting ready to build a new coop to fill with our new chicks -- trying my hand as some meat birds this year.

    Figured I would say hello! Howdy! Hola! You know the drill before I start bugging you guys to death.
    Peace out,
    Emily Of Indiana
