    My name is Amber. I am a single mom of 4 kids and a 4 yr old kitty Jazzy. I have never had Chickens but my kids and I have been interested in byc's for @ few years now. Well our chance is finally here! I am in the process of putting a contract on a house. So not only am I a first time home buyer, but a first time cooper! After seeing the house, I already have my coop plan laid out. I know exactly where its going and how I am going to do it!! The house sits on a huge lawn so my chickies will get free run whenever we are home. We spend most of our time outdoors.

    Next I need to start planning my garden. I realize as with any pet, there are good and bad plants so I will be looking around here to see what I can have in my veggie/herb patch.

    I am so excited. Since there are 5 of us in my family, we are going to have 5 chickies.. (the limit here anyways.. it wasnfate!) A baby for each of us.

    My skinned babies.. I have 2 girls 14 and 11 and two boys 7 and 2.

    Im glad to be here!

    Amber, did you get the house and the chance to get a few chickens? We want to hear all about the house and chickens.
