    Hi there! I've been lurking for a while, preparing for the arrival of four chicks (White Rock, Black Australorp, Buff Orpington, and Pigeon Rock, in 2 weeks). I live with my husband, 2 kids, and various pets in Louisville, where we've decided to just go ahead and make a mini-farm of our 1/8 acre lot [​IMG]

    Hillshouse--I grew up in Symsonia, not far from you.

    I'm loving this forum and learning a lot. We're a little nervous about successfully raising our 4 chicks to adulthood... you'll probably be seeing questions from me popping up over the next few weeks!

    Just wanted to say hello to everyone and wish all a Happy Holiday.

    I live in Mount Eden and my boyfriend Alan, lives in Owensboro. And I work in Louisville.

    We have several different breeds of bantams. My favorites are my polish, d'uccles, and sumatras.

    Olive Hill is not far off I64 east of Lexington, closer to Morehead (a college town). The area is economically depressed. there are a lot of small farms primarily raising cattle and tobacco. For a full-time job you would be looking at driving to Morehead or Maysville or possibly Mt. Sterling. Olive Hill has a State park (Carter Cave) which may provide possible employment depending on what you are looking for. It would definitely afford you rural living where no-one would complain about your chickens.
