    Hi from Gainesville, FL! [​IMG] I've been sneaking around for a while on the forums hoping somehow I could figure out how to hide a hen next to the pool at my significant other's house. Even considered keeping a hen in my apartment (people keep other birds in their houses right? [​IMG]). BUT, I just found out, I have to move out of my apartment anyway. I found a house to rent with a nice big back yard! Neighbors have chickens too! Boyfriend is very excited to build a coop and play with chicks! I'm very excited about fresh food!

    About Me:
    Sophomore Veterinary Student at UF
    Have 1 dog, a collie mix named Skip
    Had 2 flocks of 30-40 RIRs growing up (as well as horses)
    Planning on getting a few EEs, a polish, BF wants a silkie, maybe a few RIRs, not sure what else?
    I would like to get a few guineas and maybe a duck, but not sure neighbors would appreciate the noise [​IMG]
    I want to try to get a hen or two in July to start out with so I don't have to wait for eggs with the chicks
    If anyone will be selling chicks or hens in July/August anywhere around Gainesville to Orlando please let me know!

    [​IMG] & [​IMG] from Alabama. My DF is a vet & he was sooo glad to be out of vet school when he graduated, so I bet you probably can't wait either. We have guineas & ducks, plus all of our other animals, & they're great [​IMG]
