Is there a Chat room and if so, is it live and any hints? I am finding that the chickens I originally purchased for egg production, are quickly endearing themselves to me, even though they aren't laying yet. I find myself on chicken sites more an more often. When I had chickens on the farm (years ago), they were simply for egg production. This new adventure with my backyard flock have taken on an entirely new dimension with each chicken earning her/his own name. Of course, there aren't any goats, cows, sheep, etc. to take care of, so maybe its just because I have more time to notice the chickens. I have found this site extremely helpful for information.
