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. I am a bit of an over achiever, but I usually manage to muddle through. Fernie Married, Mother of 6, Slave to 20 rabbits, 5 cats, 3 parakeets, 3 ducks, and 1 pup with 100 chicks on the way.
