Backyard Chicken.com has been my bedrock ever since I decided to have chickens in my life.
I talked to as many people as I could who had chickens, I read several books and I found you! I learned so much...I saved one bird's life because of you. I understood desease and death of my sweet Phoebe because of you. I was comforted by the quick response during a medical emergency. Howcomforting.
I began a new group on BYC---a writer's group. Writing is my profession so I decided to see if there were other writers hanging around.
What a surprise.when a flood of responses came in. Now we are beginning to define ourselves and share info. There are some very, very accomplished writers, and some "well published" is the term. Basically members of this board who have published ten or more complete novels! How about that???
Some very talended folks. I'm so glad we found each other.
My other life is as a researcher and writer. My passion is my family, my orchard and my chickens.
