Very new to chickens. Got my first 5 in December 2013 when i moved on to an acre and a half in the country. Never in my wildest dreams did i ever think i would cry over a danged ole chicken but man o man. When i lost my first rooster, Benny the banty roo, i cried like i had just lost one of the most important people in my life. Broke my heart into a million pieces.:hitWho knew ? Not me !
At this time i have 29 chickens.EE, OE, BCM, Lav Orp, Austr, D'Uccle Bantam x EE, Leghorn mix, Red Sex Link
I stumbled on BYC while researching about my first chickens.
My place in the country has a coop that was in very bad shape. I have since redesigned the thing at least 6 times. Every time i see a new idea that looks like it would work for me i hit the door running.   I never thought at 54 yrs old i would be raising kids but, i am raising an 8 yr old grand daughter, 2 Lab mix dogs, Belle and Kosmo, 29 chickens, and 3 parakeets. I would love to have a fainting goat and i may expand in to turkeys soon but i think that will be enough for me.

Welcome to Backyard chickens.   Really enjoyed your intro - many, many folks on here feel the same when loosing one of the flock, especially their favorites.  One  bycer used to post videos of her fainting goats - they were hysterical.   I think as they mature they don't faint anywhere near as often  but, I'm told their legs shake a little . Darn!  Goats in general  are very amusing and as I  understand   great escape artists.    Hope to see you around on some of the other threads.:frow

Welcome to BYC! I'm sorry to hear about your rooster.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
