    Hi All,

    I'm new to having chickens as an adult...however we had good-sized flock when I was a kid. This site has been a wonderful tool in helping me refresh my memory of how to take care of the chickens.

    I'm getting my first 2, getting ready to start laying, hens tomorrow and I'm so excited. I have wanted to get chickens for so long now, I can't believe I'm finally getting them.

    My DH is really happy too, once he tried a fresh egg, he knew we needed to have our own. I've got 4 kids (the oldest graduated last June and the youngest just turned a year old) who are all excited too (okay, maybe not the baby, but I'm sure he'll like watching the hens walking around).

    I'd love to connect with anyone else in my area...Oregon.
