Hello everyone i am so happy to be here. I am new to having a flock of any thing instead of dogs lol... we have four of those and lots of salt water fish haha, and are looking forward to having so much fun raising my new found friends.... i've probably already messed up a few times already, but so far ever one seems healthy, chirpy and happy. I have 5 what i hope are all hens still waiting to learn how to tell the difference. one Peking duck i so wish i woulds got two but she or he gets so much attention they are happy.... and two white turkeys...We thought about doing this last year but didn't make the time frame but this year my husband and i couldn't resist!! I thought i knew what breeds of chickens i have and hope to find out from here... so much learning and i've done so much reading already so i look forward to my first forum i have ever belonged to with backyard chickens.com!! What a wonderful website and community... My last daughter has finally moved on with adulthood, so we are starting new hobbies with all this land ; including our new found farm animals. My husband and I love to go to yard sales, and work on motorcycles and cars,,, and i in particular grew my first garden last year and am enjoying that this year as well.. Like i said before, we have 4 dogs a chocolate lab, 2 chihuahua's and a shih tzu. I also am a fish fanatic with a 50 gallon salt water tank. Love my doggies.... .... I am a computer administrator (semi- retired) and my hubby is a carpenter... well for now i look forward to learning, reading and sharing our new found "little farm" with everyone.... Thanks !! Tiff and Dewey P.S. Oh and i hope to get a pot belly pig soon !! .... am loving new farm life !!
