    Hello there. I have been raising chickens for a year and they are great stress relievers.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - great that you have joined us. I agree, they are good fun to watch and can take one's mind off the more serious stuff, for sure. I hope that you enjoy yourself here on BYC.

    [​IMG] Welcome to byc!!! Hope you like here so far, and i'm glad to see that you joined. I think it's funny that you think that chickens are great stress relievers, because I think exactly the same thing!!! I'll watch the chickens instead of watching the tv.
    Just a little heads up that the learning center is great to gain some knowledge about chickens, and I hope you like it here!! Happy to see that you joined!

    Hi Dashy! Yes, chickens are great stress relievers! I love coming home from work, setting up a lawn chair in the chicken run, and having the girls take turns sitting on my lap and telling about their day in their little coos and chatter!
