I didn't lurk, I found the forum on a Google search, saw all the lovely people talking chickens and jumped in. Now I spent 90% of my time here talking about other things hide.gif

In the 19th century, Britain taught us how to produce. In the twentieth, the US taught us how to consume. If China is to lead the world in the 21st century, it must teach us how to sustain.

I joined after about two days of lurking.  I found my peeps!

 

Sadly though, I will not be able to have any chickens in the near future.  I'll be getting involved in the urban backyard chicken movement though.  I really hope that catches on and the stupid HOA rules change!  Meanwhile, I'll enjoy everybody else's chickeny experiences by reading this board. :)

I found this site when I just had some baby chicks- thanks to my husband saying, 'don't take those eggs I marked she's been sitting on them to long, I'm letting her keep them'.. He's so sweet :-/
I only lurked for a few days & am also guilty of posted when I found a post I may have been able to answer lol I will confess to know nothing about chickens & don't know how I've had them so long smile.png without!
I can't post photos from my phone sad.png & have none on my computer. So I searched tons of photos of baby chicks and swore the baby's were going to be black or grey silkies. Silkie mom was sitting on them..
But guess I have mutt chickens now - they have Silkie feet but are black and white like the silver laced Wyandottes?!!

I think it starts with google...someone thinks about chickens and googles...and then that leads them here...but that question leads to another that leads to a topic, that leads to a discussion, and then you are lurking often and just reading and reading, and then you are like Hey, I'll sign up

It could happen. Just remember, Pluto used to be a planet.

And when things go wrong, always remember, even geese cheat sometimes.
