    Hi, I’m obsessed with chickens!

    Hello fellow chicken people. I’m new here and have been lurking for awhile. I have a flock of 8 chickens at home with my Dad in lower Michigan. I moved to the UP and had to leave my lovely flock behind... I was their number one caretaker so I’m heartbroken... I was hoping to get a flock up here...

    Hello everyone!

    I'm 21 and my start with the chickens wasn't good. It all started about 11 years ago when i got my very first roosters. I had 5 of them. I was with them every day.
