    I have only been a chicken owner for a little over a year and I have had lots of fun during this time. I have experienced many different things, some good and bad, and still have more to go. So here is my checklist of what I experienced so far and what I haven’t. Please help me add anything to my list that needs to be added or I might have forgot. Thanks! [​IMG]
