Hi! I'm Nanci and we love in Oregon. We bought a new home in November, and it came with an amazing chicken coop. I've wanted chickens for a long time, so it was very exciting for me to have this as part of our property. We just ordered our first chicks, and we'll be picking them up His Wednesday. We will have 3 Rhode Island Reds and 3 Barred Plymouth Rock. I've been checking out all the great information on BackYardChickens.com, but I waited until I knew for sure that we were committing to being chicken owners until joining. My husband is a retired carpenter, and we've been married for over 30 years. We have four awesome young adult kids with a future daughter in law coming this summer! I love to cook and see plus I work with my mom in our machine quilting business. I also have an Etsy shop. I'm super excited about being a new chicken mom!
