    This is the first forum I have ever signed onto. So I am not sure how to proceed. I have a small home flock of happy girls that I luv. Since Chickens are such sweet creatures I thought this would be a safe site. Looking at the topics on the Index, I could have used all this wonderful information before now. Just happy to have started now. Every one have a terrific Sunday.

    This site is the BEST. Someone is always here when you need them, whether it's to share a funny story or have a shoulder to cry on. Enjoy!

    Thank you all for the wonderful HELLO!!
    My girls are various breeds. Mostly brown egg layers. I just got some silkies that are the bomb. I love how sweet and easy going they are. I have had Blue Andalusians that were so flighty and un touchable. So now I stay with the calmer breeds. I have had the usual good luck and bad luck with my birds that are common. The neighbor dogs digging under the fence and instant slaughter. I have caught the dogs each time. Animal control is no help in this matter, but I have re built the flock and miss the old personalities and luv the new personalities. My good luck is when the missing hen returns with a brood of chicks from who know where. I would like to know of a Hatchery on the west coast that is reliable for rare breeds? I think the chicks would be better off if they did not have to travel so far.
    Thanks again for the hearty welcome.
