Just getting around to introductions...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well at least I think I am just getting around to doing introdctions... LOL. I have fibromyalgia so I have brain fog/fibro fog a lot. I am a SAHM of 3 boys. Married for almost 12 years to my best friend. We moved here to Lawrenceburg, KY a little over a year ago. As adults it is the first time we have had a place where we can have chickens. My first spring with them did not go so well. I only have one hen left now after many heart breaks along the way...

Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

 

I'm so sorry to hear about your unfortunate past experiences with your flock.:hugsIt's so hard to lose animals we care about and I'm sure it wasn't easy for you to go through.:hugs

 

But, it sounds like you have a lovely family!

 

Are you planning on getting more chickens? They are very social creatures and your remaining hen will probably appreciate some company. Here are a couple links that are worth checking out. http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

So glad you joined the flock! Feel free to ask any questions you may have.

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

Were your losses due to predators?  You might want to check out the predator section for advice on safeguarding your chickens.  I hope things will go much better for you now.

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-
