I am new to the forum. I have a small flock, 20 birds. I grew up in the city so the only exposure I had to chickens was at an occasional county fair. Now living in a nice small town, I am fulfilling my life's dream -raising farm animals. I only have chickens, but it means a lot to me. I didn't expect I would love my chickens as much as I do. I have cochens, a polish rooster (who recently started crowing all night!), silkies, and various other breeds I haven't identified. I love thier many personalities. They make me laugh. They are my favorite pastime. I look forward to sharing and learning with everyone.
