Hi all! I just joined after reading around a bit. I'm a stay at home mom with a farm dream that we're just beginning to bring to life. My husband had a sudden career change last year. It allowed us to make a leap of faith and start a new lifestyle that'd we had always wanted. We moved to the country and started a farm/homestead. So far we have a flock of 13 laying hens that we raised, plus 1 rooster, 3 Seramas (just for fun), as well as 2 ducks, some quail, 2 turkeys, a couple rabbits, and a couple goats. Oh, and an incubator full of eggs for the first time. Everything is new to us and there's a lot to learn, but I'm loving it! Google searches of my questions always lead me to BYC, so I figured I'd better create an account. I'll probably be more of a lurker than an active member but thought I'd say hi and introduce myself anyway.
