New Chicken Mama

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello!

 

I just wanted to do a really quick intro since I've been finding tons of helpful stuff on your forum the past week. :) I'm Sarah and I'm a new backyard chicken owner.  About a month ago my 9-year-old daughter's class had eggs in an incubator.  After the eggs hatched we adopted one (a Bovan White that I'm REALLY hoping is female :fl) and we also purchased a Rhode Island Red chick and a Bantam chick from a local farm store.  My husband and I have thought of having chickens for years, so we are pretty excited.  We live in town and are building a coop on the side of our large fenced in garden where the chickens will have access when we allow it and their own space when they need to stay out.

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
