    Hey all! Love this site!!!! , I was a confirmed lurker until I read the membership post Hahaa, it inspired me to make the jump , I can't believe how much finding this site has helped me out!
    I live on Vancouver Island with my boyfriend, our two rottweilers, a cat and our three Barred Rock chicks. This is my first foray in to chicken-ing. Gotta say i love it. Like I said above this site has been invaluable to me .

    wOw you guys are awesome!! I'm not great at this social media stuff but I'mma try hahaa!! Thank You for being so welcoming :)

    My rotties haven't ever been around chickens before so they still don't quit know what to make of them...Ha!! I don;t trust 'em hehee..

    I tell u it's been an adventure so far...I envision a mini hobby homestead-y-ish home...i can see it now... My man has put a kibosh of my grand dreams...temporarily ....I forgot to mention i liked in Vancouver for the first 23 years of my life in apartments and condos for all of them and mowed my first lawn at 29 or 30 bahahaaa!! but a girl can dream.. and dreams can come true!!
    Yup.. this now island girl dreams of livin a quasi farm life! Who'da guessed?

    Thanks for havin me!!!
