    I ordered my first chicks yesterday. [​IMG] I'm so excited. My husband thinks I'm nuts because I ordered 40 buff orpingtons and 10 EE's. "What are we going to do with 50 chicks?!"
    We just bought this acreage last fall, so I'm ready to try my hand at farming. The chicks will be my first livestock... [​IMG]
    We have 2 daughters, 1 springer sp, 1 boxer, 1 inside cat, 6 barn cats and several fan tail goldfish that are ready to go back into the pond.
    I have enjoyed reading your post. You have been very informative for me. There have been many times you have made me laugh out loud.
    Thanks
    (I've never blogged(?) before, so I'm a little nervous)

    So happy to see you! I also have a Boxer and I collect anything with a Boxer on it! Ours is 10 and his name is Rocky. I'm also really new to this whole discussion board thing but I have found out so much info. Used to, when I wondered about something, I would go buy a book and try and read and see if I could find the answer, but now my first reference is this website! I love it!

    Hope you enjoy it as well!
