    Since i been here a few days, and not really anyone has said hello to me i thought maybe t was cause i didn't post here.. so here i go lol

    My name is Tami MacLeod, i am now in ely mn. I was born in Germany then lived in Iceland, UK, Scotland.. which is my family's castle Dunvegan, on the Isle of Skye, i also lived in NZ and a few more places, I was an army brat and we moved every 2 years when i was a kid. German was my first lang then Icelandic then Gaelic and then English, so if i dont make sense you know why hahahha.
    I have 2 yellow labs, my female is a dock dog and is seen on ESPN some times. I have one ferret my other passed away at 7 years old. 2 Russian tortoises both male, one cat named Charliee, female.. and Monday july 11th a mum to 25 chicks.

    I have one son Ryan, hes 21, my daughter Heather passed away march 24th 2011, from cancer, she fought it for 17 years, she was 2 when she first got cancer.

    Lets see.. oh i think that is about it, i am sure you will see me around tons, asking questions and maybe i can even help with some answers too.

    [​IMG] Have you kept chickens prior to this? So sorry to hear about your daughter, I watched a close family friend of ours go through this, and only can send you condolences and peace. Glad you are here.
