Hey there!! I'm new to this forum, but I've kept chickens for a couple years. I'm no expert at all. I'm still learning and I still feel like I don't know what I'm doing! But, you're right!!! It is fun and chickens are a pure joy to keep. I love all of mine. I have a variety pack I guess. 1 black australorp, 1 easter egger, 1 barred rock. and 1 rhode island red. I had a silkie rooster, but unfortunately a coyote got him (I think). I also had an Old English Game bantam hen that I ADORED, but she disappeared. A hawk I think. No more free range without supervision until I can figure this all out. She was my favorite of them all. The sweetest and most friendly. I am trying my hand at hatching some eggs in a incubator right now. I'm on day 7. Not sure how it's going yet, but my fingers are crossed.
Anyways, nice to meet you!!!
