    Hi everyone! I haven't raised chickens before, but after moving from the concrete hell of Tampa to beautiful NE Georgia, I am ready. Looking forward to learning and having fresh eggs! :)

    Go to Yo Georgias thread. There are plenty of BYC people across North Georgia willing to give you a hand. Those beautiful North Georgia mountains are hard to beat. I am in Middle Georgia off of I 75 South of Macon. Best of luck. I am sure that you will enjoy North Georgia and the chickens. Stop by on the way north and I will give you a dozen fresh eggs.

    Tending to my chickens
    [​IMG] Just be careful on the amount of chickens you get at first. Usually people (myself included) plan on only raising a few, then they become so addicted to them they can't seem to get enough. [​IMG][​IMG] Enjoy!
