    Hi. javascript:insert_text('[​IMG]',%20'') I caught "chicken fever" this spring from a friend who keeps hens, and have now passed it on to another friend, who fell in love with my hens. (She's up over 40 birds now.) I bought 6 BO pullets and dh and the kids helped build a very rustic pen and coop. The girls are so sweet! I free range them in the afternoon and they come running to me whenever I come outside. I also have 3 ten week old silkies, a birthday present to my 7 yo son from my "chicken lady" friend. One of my hens went broody, so I offered her "services" and now she's sitting on 6 speckled sussex eggs. javascript:insert_text('[​IMG]',%20'');

    Other interests: 4 kids, all homeschooled; dh keeps bees and brews beer, wine and mead; we adopted a retired maremma shepherd dog; I am NOT a crazy feral cat rescue lady I don't care what anyone tells you! javascript:insert_text('[​IMG]',%20''); ; my teens volunteer at a living history museum; my 3 daughters and I bellydance; dh and I run a small business in addition to his day job. In our spare time we . . . what spare time?

    I've been lurking for a while and my middle daughter says it's time for me to sign on (she chose my username). I learn so much every day here. A lot of it I hope I never need to use, but it's so good to know that if I get in trouble this great resource is here. I'm really impressed with how helpful and supportive the tone is on the forum.
