Married to a super handy fire fighter who is currentky working on the coop. We have 3 dogs - an Australian Shepherd, a blue heeler, and a beagle mix rescue. I'm a veterinarian (part of the reason I ventured into becoming a crazy chicken lady -- will force me to learn more about backyard poultry medicine). We're having fun so far, but still trying to figure out how to rig up a run or chicken tractor and hoping we didn't end up with 3 barred rock roosters Also on the fence about the option of free ranging
