I'm so darn excited to join. I have been reading your board for two months now just soaking it all up. I love all of the ideas and exchanges. This is the best site ever. So, a little about me. I am the mother of four and live in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. We used to live in Denver, and four years ago I decided to buy a beautiful home in Bailey. This spring we decided to go crazy and get some chickens. They are to arrive next from MPC. The kids are so excited, my husband thinks I have become a crazy mountain lady and my mother is excited to watch the chickens... from the other side of the property LOL. I'm excited to join the crowd. I want to thank everyone for posting pics of their coops. Your pictures and ideas have made this process possible. I would have been too much of a coward to try chickens without this board. Thank you. Now, if you'll excuse me I'm off to the other threads. Happy cluckin'.
