    Default Hi!

    I'm Mandy! I don't have a huge family but we're ttc our 4th. Our kids are 8,7, and almost 2. I'm 32 and we've been married for 12 years. We homeschool and keep chickens in the city. Lol. I can't think of anything else to say about myself. I'm slightly boring. Hahaha. I'm glad to be here.

    Yay--welcome, Mandy. From the few posts I've read from you it seems we have many similarities

    Welcome! I wish you the best with TTC #4!

    That is one of my worries when I look at houses (from my House thread).

    Welcome! I am newly pg with #4 and just been hoping for a sticky bean! We have 8 chickens as well, and live in the suburb, not exactly "city" though. We love the fresh eggs! I have considered homeschooling MANY times, but haven't taken the plunge yet--my kids are in K and 1st grade currently.

    Welcome

    Technically, I think we could keep chickens now. But we're just renting, and we have a no pets clause in the lease... so I don't think the owner would be very happy, lol.

    Oh chickens are the best! I'm allowed to have up to 10 but I'm taking a year to make sure I don't kill them off or anything before I get that many. Lol. I have an Easter egger named Lacey who ADORES me! Who would have thought it? She has a beard as most Easter eggers do and she likes to cuddle with me. She runs to me when she sees me, tries to find me when she hears my voice, ets... She's a hoot! My other chickens like me only if I bring them a cookie, aka- grass clippings. Lol. Anyway, I'm nuts for my chickens, as I'm sure you can tell.

    As for homeschooling, it's the best decision I've ever made... I LOVE it. My kids love it! If you jump in, jump in with both feet and don't look back!

    Welcome Mandy! Nice to meet you. I like the idea of city chickens for some reason.

    Welcome!!!
    I may be asking for chicken advice in a year or two. I've wanted them but for the past few years it's been one thing or another. We're rural so no restrictions but I'm thinking 4-6 chickens will work for us (probably 6). Did you build your own chicken coop? That's my big thing keeping me from starting, I really don't want to spend a ton on buying one so I want to build one and I'm pretty sure my midwife would frown upon that at this point in my pregnancy (DH says if I want chickens it's up to me ).
    Good luck TTC, hope it happens quickly for you!
