    Fernie Chillin' With My Peeps

    Hello All,

    I'm Fernie. Currently residing in North-East Wisconsin. We had chickens years ago, but moved back to the city and could not have them. Sold the entire flock. Now we are in a place where we can have animals. We currently have 20 rabbits, 3 parakeets, 5 cats, 1 Puppy, 3 ducks and should have 100 chicks tomorrow or Friday.

    We are a large family and have grown our own vegetables and fruits as we could for years. Now we are getting back into the raising our own meat. I am trying to convince everybody we need a few Meat goats, dairy goats and maybe a sheep or two. I have 2 of the 4 people I need to sell on the idea convinced. Now to get the other two convinced.

    It is getting a close to my bed time and I need to work on knitting my socks. Next week I will be knitting the last 900 or so yards of my shawl. [​IMG]


    I am a bit of an over achiever, but I usually manage to muddle through.

    The husband and the landlord/neighbor also enable me in my poultry addiction. We just got called by the Green Bay PO asking if we wanted to drive down and pick up our chicks tonight or if they should send them to the local P.O. Husband said send them to the local P.O. I am so excited I can hardly sit still.

    I am too. I have really missed the animals. My next purchase should be some geese. Just to make my husband go crazy. the last geese we had did not respond to anybody but me. They bit and attacked everybody but me and the kids. I had them well trained.

    Use to belong long ago, but had a stalker causing me untold amounts of grief. Deleted every account I had online. My husband did the same. I legally got my name changed. end of stalker and I can be online. Just so fun to get a stalker. I know what the celebrities that have them feel.
