    I joined this forum about 5 years ago when we lived in another town. a year later we moved and this spring we finally got our first chicks. I'm so glad we finally did it, the chickens have added a lot to our lives. they are more enjoyable then I could have imagined.
    my 7 year old son joined the 4H poultry club as well....we are totally into this. [​IMG]

    backyard chickens has been a wealth of knowledge for us, almost every question we had was already answered here, hence my lack of posting.

    I just wanted to thank you all for contributing to this awesome forum and website.

    thank you and keep up the great work!
