    Hello! My name is Janet, and I've been lurking on the board all week trying to soak up as much information as I can. I am impulsive, and tend to make my decisions very spontaneously, but research them to death before I actually take the plunge.

    That being said, Sunday night is when I decided I wanted to raise chickens! My husband has been begging to get rid of the above ground pool that we have. Between the pool and the deck, it takes up a LOT of space. Monday we discussed it, and I agreed to try and sell it, IF we could get chickens. After talking to me about it, he agreed and actually is pretty excited about it. Monday, I also called about zoning ordinances, even though I'm in the county, because I live in a residential area. I'm all set!

    Yesterday, I sold the pool!

    Today I ordered six pullets from Meyer Hatchery. Coincidently, my friend that's buying our pool has raised chickens her whole life, including incubating and hatching them herself, so I have her to help me out too! Around July 27, I will have two Delaware, two Dominique, and two Ameraucana's!

    I look forward to learning much more from you guys!

    [​IMG] Janet! Glad you joined.. and sold your pool for chickens. You are going to love them. Next thing you know, you wont have enough room for all of the chickens you will want. They are as addictive as this site is! Enjoy!!!!!!!!

    I run a home daycare, and I'm very excited because my daycare parents are as excited as I am! I also have two cats, and two dogs. One is a pomeranian mix, and the other is a paralyzed Shih Tzu we saved from being put down.

    I'm 30, have been married for five years, and I have a four year old son. We're thrilled to get everything started!
