    Hi y'all, I'm just getting my feet wet with learning about raising chickens. It's something I've wanted to do for a while but we are really doing it this year!

    A little about myself...I'm married 11 years, my husband and I are pharmacists and we have two children, a 5 year old boy and 13 month girl. Year before last I started trying to garden, I have 5 4x4 square foot garden beds, and last year I got two hives of bees. So I'm having fun! Even though I feel like I might just lose my mind at times :)

    I've already found some quite helpful information and m hoping I can get some assistance with ideas for my coop. I'll start a separate thread. Looking forward to making some new friends on here!

    the Learning Center is a great place to start. If you would like to meet others in your area, go to "where am I, where are you." in the social forum. You can locate and post on your state thread.
