    Good Morning,

    My husband and I bought a 40 acre farm in Western NC a couple of years ago and just this spring I bought my first chickens. 2 leghorns and 4 isa browns. I'm loving it. My husband built a chicken tractor for me (it's a little to heavy, hard to move) and I've finally got it through to our Yellow English Lab that he can't mess with the chickens when I let them out.
    Thanks for letting me join. I have much to learn.
