    Hi, my name is Rachel. I'm from Vermont, and I have a confession to make. I am obsessed with chickens. I started a class project in my third grade classroom Incubating eggs in 2011. When they hatched I decided to keep them. I then ordered 25 more. I found that chickens were just a gateway bird. I have now just ordered geese!

    [​IMG] Hello and welcome. I am kind of a neighbor of yours (Haverhill, NH) One of my favorite cousins is a teacher in Cabot, I wonder if you know her, last name Raynor. I am pretty new too, but a long time follower. I have been able to find help and support on about every thing, big or small. New to chickens this year and a natural worrier, so this forum is my daily go-to.

    This is what happens when you let your addiction get out of
    control or the best of you ......



    Also if you can not correct your addition you will find yourself
    on the computer yacking with others who have the chicken bug ....
