    I've lived in Texas for all but one year of my life. I always thought this was the best place in the world to be. But, since looking at pictures of coops, and yards, and other sites on BYC, I now want to go someplace nicer - not so hot and not so dry.

    If you could live anywhere in US, with your chickens, where would you live?

    Honestly....Right where I am! I have waited my whole life to live somewhere like this. The only other option would be just a little closer to the mountians but they are only an hour or so away as it is. My summers growing up were spent in the mountians of MT by Kalispell. That is a beautiful area but far to crowded these days. So I guess I am good right here!

    Somewhere with mountain views and water to play in...the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is pretty awesome, though it doesn't have mountains. The Great Lakes are really fun, though.

    If Hawai'i wasn't so expensive, I'd move there. ^_^

    Truthfully, right were I am, only on a property I OWN. [​IMG] I lived here as a small child (Roseburg, OR) and was moved to Klamath Falls OR when I was six. I remember that the happiest I have ever felt in my life was when I lived here in Roseburg. I spent nearly 20 years of my life in the Sacramento CA area and as soon as my kids graduated from high school, we moved here to the Umpqua valley. I'm about 45 minutes from Crater Lake and equally as far from the ocean, and most importantly to me, it is GREEN here most of the year without the summers being too hot. I love the rainy weather in the winter too. Also, an added bonus is that I'm over 700 miles from the EVIL ex-husband now. [​IMG]

    Right here in the Northeastern Panhandle of WV or just over the border in the Highland area of Virginia. Soaring mountains, big green valleys, moderate temps and good rainfall. Low humidity, the most clear mountain water and beautiful views in all seasons! Abundant wildlife, good fishing and clean air. Some days I get tears in my eyes at how blessed I am to be living here, at the beauty around me and the serenity of my days. My animals are all healthy and happy, as are we! C'mon, Texas, move on over here into The Mountain State! Actually, I lived on the opposite side of the state for most of my life and it was nothing to rave about at all....but this? Almost heaven!!!
