    Hello,

    I am a new member from Northern Illinois. I don't have any chickens yet, but when someone helps me with a plan if possible! or I do it myself, I will hopefully have chickens very soon! I'm a full time firefighter and also umpire baseball and officiate football a lot in my spare time. I have a 3 year old daughter and my wife is pregnant with our second, due any day probably. My daughter loves chickens, though she won't touch them often, so hopefully she will like this little adventure!

    Where in Northern Wisconsin? I used to work at a boy scout camp in Birchwood, WI for years.
