Hello from Nova Scotia, Canada

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi, just making the initial contact as a new member.  My then 12-year old son had tried his hand at raising a few chickens, but he lost interest when he realized he wasn't going to make millions selling a few eggs :-).  So my daughter and I took over, we now have 2 roosters/coops with 9 chickens each.  I thoroughly enjoy them, I hadn't realized they had such personalities.  I always say I don't have a flock of chickens, I have a herd, as they're free range (we have 5 acres), and whenever they see me in the garden, I have 10 - 15 chickens running flat out to see what I'm doing!  I also no longer have a compost pile, it's a chicken feeding station as any kitchen waste gets picked over, about the only thing they don't eat are citrus rinds....even the tea bags seem to disappear.....

Nice to meet you Suzanne.  Oh my, those poor chickens are down to raiding the compost pile, they are so hungry  :lau   I bet they prefer it to their nutritious chicken feed. What can you say,  they're chickens.   Welcome to Backyard chickens - so glad you joined the flock :celebrate .  You may also enjoy posting  at "Canadians, check-in-here."

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
