    Hi there! I've been lurking the boards for weeks and have finally decided to take the plunge and become a member. I live in the city and checked with all the officials and confirmed that I am indeed allowed to have hens on my property! (yay!) So we acquired 2 barred rock chicks (so far...) We plan on getting 2 Rhode island reds as well but are waiting for them to hatch. Coop construction is complete (minus the paint job... still haven't decided on a color yet..) Run construction is underway.. I'm excited to be here. This site has been a HUGELY valuable resource already.

    Things about me...

    I'm young..(under 30)
    I married my HS sweetheart - been together for 11 years)
    We have 2 kids (5yr. old boy and a 2 yr. old girl)
    3 cats, 2 fish, 1 dog.
    I'm a Emergency Veterinary Technician
    I'm a sucker for sweets.
    I'm chatty..

    Nice to meet Ya'll.

    Quote:Hubby and a couple of his friends built the coop for me in an evening. I made sure to withold the beer until they were near completion. LOL. It still needs nesting boxes and a roost (and the aforementioned coat or two of paint..) I have some photos but I think I have to work my way up to 10 or so posts here before I can post them?

    THanks everyone for the warm welcome. [​IMG]
