    Hello out there! My name is Angie, and I hail from Fairmont, WV, where me, my man, and my teenage son are starting a micro farm this season. Our garden is tilled, spinach is sowed, bunch of seedlings started indoors, and we just got our very first baby chicks a few days ago (the two little Black Australorps in my avatar pic). We have 8 more coming: a pair of Brahmas, pair of Araucanas, pair of Barred Plymouth Rocks, and a pair of Silver Laced Wyandottes. All are pullets that we plan to raise for egg laying.

    I'm not a very join-y kind of person, but every time I have a chicken question for google, the Backyard Chicken forums pop up first. I've learned so much from this site already, and I'm going to have a hundred more questions, because I'm in the grips of chicken fever!
