New Chicken Mommy

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all! I'm new to raising chickens and have been learning a lot from this site already. We just ordered 15 BR chicks this week from My Pet Chicken, so for now we are working on our first coop and brooder. When we first decided we wanted chickens, it was mainly about the eggs and healthy meat. But in the process of getting started, we have become so excited about just having them lol. I can see how easily it is to become chicken obsessed. I love the little boogers already and they are not even an egg yet. Maternal much? hmm.png lol! I look forward to chatting with you all!

Happy wife, mother to 3 wonderful kids, 2 cats, 1 dog and 28 chickens...that were originally supposed to be 8. Not sure how that happened, but we love them all!

I think quite a few people get into chickens first for the meat and eggs and then find out how much fun they can be. They each have their own quirks and behaviors and it's great just to watch them go about their daily business.

 

Have fun with the chicks and take lots of pictures because they don't stay small long!

Thanks everyone! I appreciate the state join link. I will do that. smile.png NorthFLChick, I spotted your link for the home bakers thread. I'm so excited to see there are so many home bakers here! We stopped buying bread and most other baked goods several months ago. It was a fun process learning to bake everything. My kids went from complaining about my bread to never wanting store bought bread again.wink.png
