Greetings from the countryside of NH! I am a 24 year old mother of one baby girl, and one puppy I'm looking to expand our family by a few... feathered friends!! I'm new to the whole chicken thing, let alone this site! I'm a farm girl by birth, I grew up raising pigs, ponies and dogs, but chickens are new to me! I am now living on a three acre lot, and my husband and I would like to have a "Back-yard homestead". We have had a nice garden for the three years we have been living here, and we are planning on going bigger next year, and adding the fun of chickens. We are having fun with all the planning, and my hubby is designing the coop, and planning on building it soon! I am hoping to be able to glean chickie wisdom off the wise chicken owners I hope to befriend here! Thanks in advance! I'll see you out there.
