I grew up in rural Illinois but moved to the suburbs as an adult. I have never been much of a city person. While house hunting in Louisville KY (hubs work is relocating us) I realized I can have chickens! That's how I found this site. I am a handy lady and can't wait to gather materials and build my first coop. I am happy I found this community. It's packed with informative real life information. My name is Brie, I'm married with two sons and a daughter on the way!
