Hello from Indiana

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello! I'm not new to chickens, but new to them as a hobby on my own :)  We had chickens growing up and I raised 2 turkey's from day old in high school. We also had a bunch of laying hens 2 years ago that something came in and killed :(  We are going to try free ranging and I am hatching out my first bunch from an incubator and getting more this coming week after they are all out. We also are picking up 50 pullets next Friday, lol. This seems to be addicting!

Welcome! Looks like chicken math is getting you, too! Hope the hatching goes well!jumpy.gif

I am crazy about a lot of things. Chickens, reading, writing stories, and most importantly my King, Jesus. :D

Hello and welcome-byc.gif
You are going to fit right in. I think we've even got a thread somewhere for poultry addicts! lol.png Free ranging is great for the chickens, they absolutely love it, we have been free ranging for years. I'm sorry you lost your hens before! sad.png Good luck this time round, and enjoy the site big_smile.png
My chickens: Silva, Peach, Trotsky, and one fat Chirpy which is slow-moving, unfit, doesn't lay eggs and contributes nothing to the activities in the garden. Chirpy presides over the diligent workers and steals the food they get in return for laying eggs. One fears humans may have a large imbalance to fight in the ways of the natural world... Hehehe.
