    Hi! My name is Stacy. I am a 36 year old nurse in eastern NC. My husband and I are in the process of buying our first home, and one of my major requirements is that I be able to raise chickens and a couple miniature cows!
    I have been dreaming about raising some chickens for a few years, but being a renter prohibited that. Hopefully, by May we will be on our dream "mini-farm!"
    I found this website through my sister, who has about half a dozen layers. She said this was the best resource out there for novices. I look forward to getting to know ya'll and learning about raising chickens.

    Welcome! We are also looking forward to getting our own house and land to raise chickens (hopefully soon!). This site is definitely a good resource for chickens and other poultry. Good luck to you guys!

    Congratulations on your new home and the fact that you are researching prior to getting your birds. That's the right way of doing things. [​IMG]
