    Hello folks! Just wanted to say how much I enjoy BYC and its one of the reasons that I have decided to become a chicken owner.......(or do they own us?) I am looking forward to meeting yall on the forums and already I have gotten lots of info. Im planning on getting chicks next month and today Im going to start on my brooder. [​IMG] My wife and son think Ive gone overboard already with all the catalogs from hatcheries that Ive ordered. But I know when those babies get here, they will adopt them as their own. [​IMG] Yall have fun and God bless each one of you.

    Welcome rikkitikki58.

    I'm in the same boat. Wife has allergies and doesn't like dogs. I don't like cats. My 4 yr old son is getting stir crazy just cleaning up his toys and room. I thought some backyard chickens might be fun and bring some fresh eggs to the table. My wife isn't totally on board, but I'm hoping she will come around.

    Welcome to rikkitikki and gonzo.

    Not to worry, the rest of your family will come around.
    Even my kids thought I was crazy, but now they're the first to pick which one is theirs, and I've even caught DH checking out the peeps and talking to them.
