    Hi there, I've been lurking around Backyard Chickens for a while, and I finally decided to join, it looks like a close, friendly community, and I have finally just bit the bullet and made an account, I don't own chickens, but I want to, they seem like they are usually friendly, and the eggs are a great part too! I'm hoping to get some chickens soon, but I cant say definitely yet, if there's any wisdom you chicken owners could pass on to me, it would be greatly appreciated!
