Hey everyone....Ive been a BYC member for a long time now, and have grown our flock to 14 hens. i am in RI wherre there are mixed laws in keeping chickens. Where I am it is ok, butt he town next to me it is illegal. On the other side of me, you can even keep roosters with no problems. I recently became an Examiner for examiner.com. I am the only National Exmainer writing about backyard chicken keeping. My aim is to both eduacte those that want to get chickens, and have the same questions I had, and laos, I want to talk abotu tricks and short cuts I have learned now that I have been raising chickens for a while. Here is the link to my profile and articles. I have published three simple articels so far. I WOULD LOVE SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT TO WRITE ABOUT!!! I also am fine with promoting other sites if you have one, as long as we support each other!!! http://www.examiner.com/backyard-chickens-1-in-national/nick-orlando I am on Facebook...Nick Orlando (Rhode Island). I am on Twitter and you can follow the articles as well @backyardflock. If you can click the Like button on the article mastheads, that would be appreciated, and if you know others that coudl spread the word or find this info intersting, please pass on the link. Us chicken people need to stick to gether and support each other. I hope to hear suggestions, comments and anything else you have to say. If you have comments to leave, please leave them onthe articles at the end. MUCH APPRECIATED!!!
