    Hi guys! not only am I a chicken lover, but I am an animal fanatic! For years, my mom and I lived in a condo so we couldn't really own any animals other than some hamsters and a cat. We just recently saved up together and moved to a 7 acre farm! our farm has no previous barns or anything, so we are starting from scratch but I wanted to share some of my experiences and new animals with you guys! We moved in during August, and over that period of time we have gotten 1 cat that the previous owners left (making a total of 2 cats), 1 puppy, 18 chickens, 2 rabbits, and soon to be 2 goats! I am in awe of my life now and so proud my mom and I could make a dream a reality. We have named our little homestead/farm "Hidden Creek Acres" I have attached some pics of my soon to be goats (I've wanted goats since I was 8... now almost 18) and would love to hear about your farm or animals!
