My name is Jacob and my wife is Meagan and we are in our 20's and are expecting our first child next summer. I have 3 Nigerian dwarf goats and the smartest catahoula I have ever met (I might be biased) and her name is willow. I am a gunsmith she works at a school and we bought our first house 7 months ago. The property we live on used to be a fruit orchard so we are trying to create our own personal micro farm. Glad to be here.

(7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community? :D

I found BYC on google when I was building my first coop and I finally joined because I have some questions about my girls egg production and that was what took me from thinking about joining to going for it.
