Finally made the chicken decision!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone.... My name is Chad and I live here in the southwest. My wife and I finally made the jump to get some chickens. We have been thinking about owning chickens for about 4 years now. We moved from our townhouse and into a huge corner lot with tons of room in the back yard. I went to a great farming town close to ours and bought a hand made coop. Next, we went to a local lady that had some Black Australorp hens for sale. We picked out 3, ranging from 5 months to 8 months. While holding the 8 month old hen, she popped out a beautiful egg! I thought this was a sign, so I bought all three.... We have moved them in to the yard and have the coop set up. I am a total beginner to chickens but look forward to learning and raising some great hens. Glad to be here. Chad

Welcome to BYC and to the chicken addiction - so glad you've joined us.

Had to smile at the egg story - two years ago at the fair one of the 4-Hers had a hen lay an egg while she was holding her in the show ring.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

That is funny  :gig.  She was so excited about coming to live with you that  she popped an egg out.  Or maybe that was an audition , so you would take her.  Black Australorps are very good birds to have and  heavy layers.

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
