    DEE88 SAYS "IT'S EASY TO BE OBSESSED..."


    WITH CHICKENS, I READ A MESSAGE HERE ON BYC AND IT WAS SO TRUE, IT SAID "IF YOU HAVE LAWN CHAIRS SET UP INSIDE OF YOUR CHICKEN COOP, THEN YOU'RE OBSESSED!!! WELL, I DO, AND I AM! MY 9 YEAR OLD SON LIKES OUR 5 PULLETS TOO!!! WE GO OUT TO OPEN THE COOP EVERY MORNING AND SIT INSIDE THE RUN AND FEED THEM SNACKS AND TALK TO THEM. THIS BYC WEBSITE HAS REALLY BEEN INFORMATIVE AND I KNOW I WILL NEED ALL OF YOUR EXPERTISE THE FIRST TIME THEY LAY AN EGG, OR HAVE SOMETHING WRONG WITH THEM, OR ANY OTHER LITTLE THING THAT HAPPENS! THEY ACTUALLY HAVE A CALMING EFFECT ON ME! I'M INTERESTED IN GETTING A MATURE ROO FOR MY 15 WEEK OLD PULLETS. I GUESS THAT MEANS OUR FLOCK WILL GROW IN THE NEAR FUTURE! I HAVE A TENDANCY TO THINK I WILL JUST LET NATURE TAKE ITS COURSE, NOT INCUBATING THE EGGS, BUT LETTING THE CHICKENS DO THAT ON THEIR OWN! I'M IN NO HURRY, JUST ENJOYING MY POULTRY PALS!CHICKENS ARE REALLY COOL!!!
    MORE ABOUT US...
    WE LIVE IN A SMALL TEXAS TOWN ABOUT 30 MILES FROM AUSTIN. THE NAME OF THE TOWN, "DRIPPING SPRINGS", CONJURES UP A VISION OF AN ABUNDANT AMOUNT OF WATER FLOWING THROUGH A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE TEXAS TOWN. IT IS A SMALL, HISTORICAL, BEAUTIFUL LITTLE TOWN, BUT THE ABUNDANT WATER VISION IS JUST NOT HAPPENING. AT LEAST THERE ARE A FEW WATERING "HOLES" AVAILABLE CLOSE-BY! WE HAVE 11 ACRES OUT IN THE BOONIES, AND WE LIVE IN A LOG HOME. WE HAVE A COLLIE, A MUTT HEINZ-57, A RABBIT AND 5 NEW CHICKENS!!! MY HUSBAND ISN'T AS EXCITED ABOUT THE CHICKENS AS OUR 9 YR. OLD BOY AND I, BUT HE DID BUILD THE COOP AND I'M SURE HE'LL HAVE NO PROBLEM EATING THE EGGS ONCE THEY START COMING! I GUESS HE WASN'T EXCITED ABOUT SPENDING THE MONEY (YOU KNOW IT'S NOT CHEAP) TO BUILD THE COOP AND RUN. I WORK IN AUSTIN IN THE REAL ESTATE FIELD AND I CAN TELL YOU THAT AUSTIN IS "CHICKEN SAVY". THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE GETTING CHICKENS, GOING ORGANIC, GOING GREEN...IT'S HARD TO FIND A CHICKEN BOOK IN THE BOOKSTORES IN AUSTIN; EVERYONE GRABS THEM UP AS FAST AS THEY COME IN...


    ANYWAY, GLAD I FOUND THIS WEBSITE, THANK YOU BYC!!!
