Grew up raising animals for 4H and FFA, but moved away to Houston after graduating high school. Have recently moved back to the country (north of Livingston) with my 8 yr old daughter and my 4 yr old son. We live on 15 acres with Mom, Grannie, sister, 2 nephews, 5 dogs, and, hopefully, tomorrow 60 chicks (various breeds) and 8 guineas. I'm very excited about it and have missed having and taking care of animals. I'm so excited about tomorrow. I will finish getting the brooder ready this evening and feel like a kid on Christmas evening waiting for Santa!! I've been checking out this forum and it seems amazing. I hope every one has a great day and I look forward to being a part of this group.
