Hello! I've been lurking here for a long time and finally decided to join. I live in a yurt in Appalachian country with my partner, 4 dogs, 2 house cats, 3 barn cats, a horse, and 12 chickens. We grow organic vegetables, cultivated mushrooms, and have 42 beehives. I'm actually a city girl being from St. Louis, but have found my home here and couldn't be happier. I adore my chickens to a fault and am glad to be part of this community!
New here from North Carolina

Glad you could join the flock! Many of us were lurkers before joining, I was one too! I'm sure you must be very busy with all your animals there! It sounds fantastic and it's great to hear you are loving this lifestyle after coming from the city. Chickens sure are fantastic and the chicken TV is great!
Wishing you the very best of luck in the future and enjoy BYC

Sitting out and watching the flock going about their business, I spend lots of time out just watching them. Chicken dynamics and pecking orders can be fun to watch
Oh yes, definitely! I hang out with my girls and roo for hours just watching them. I have 2 pullets that are new to the flock and so they are separated from the others in the coop. My 2 Ameraucaunas, who are lowest in the pecking order are just pacing to get at the new girls. Their system of hierarchy is fascinating!
