Hi all -- I have not been around in a REALLY long time so I thought I would re~introduce myself to the group. My name is Julie and me and DH are in Clovis NM. at one time we had 25 chickens and 9 ducks but due to a bad sewer system on the house we were renting we were forced to rehome all the chickens and ducks and move to a place in town. we are currently buying our house we are in now and plan on finding a piece of land and moving the home and starting all over again. but for now we have a nice family of furry and feathered kids include : a small flock of Button Quail 18 Coturnix Quail and Bobwhites that are hatching today ( if all hatch it will be 3 bobs total ) Pollie the potty mouth parrot ( quaker ) Dixie the 3 legged wonder hound - 5yr beagle/bassett mix Wally my male boxer and his wife Abbey ( boxer also ) who is due to have puppies next month. Dh works full time as a tire guy and we also run a newspaper route to bring in extra money. I would love to know how many other members are close by !!
