Hey all, just joined this great looking site! My name is Mike, my wife and 3 kids are from NB Canada. We just got our first house and its a hobby farm. I have a Golden retriever and a pet rat right now, but am looking to get some chickens and a couple goats for next spring, then taking it from there and maybe adding some other animals. I thought this would be a great site to learn the ins and outs since i really dont know much about chickens. I look forward to posting and reading all your posts!
