    Not sure if Chickenier is a word, but it sounds nice!

    Hi, I'm Jason and I live in Clark County Ohio. As you can guess from the post topic, I do live inside city limits, though not by choice. I grew up having chickens but never really gave much consideration to having a flock of my own in my adult life, funny how that worked out.

    We currently have 4 Golden Comet hens that are about 2 months old.

    Two kids, boy 13, girl 10.

    Two dogs, black lab mix, boston terrier mix (both rescues of sorts)

    Two cats, very fat lazy male tabbies, one with a bob tail (also rescues of sorts, see a trend?)

    We hope to keep our flock small, but the kids are already talking about getting their own birds to show for 4H...[​IMG]

    Glad to have found this resource, and I'm sure I will be needing direction for the back yard flock sooner or later!

    Welcome, Jason!

    This is an awesome resource for people who live in the city. (I do, too.) I grew up with chickens, but I've learned as much about them here as I did watching my parents raise them. And I stumble across something new every day.

    Enjoy!
