    That's me Paula!! I grew up on a farm for my younger years, I remember having chickens and mom setting up a chicken plucking station for us kids. It was kind of a dis-assembly line.. Anyway that was a long long time ago. My neighborhood home owners association last year said that we could have chickens. So I am wanting to jump in and get some fresh eggs and meat to feed my family. I am super excited and of course learning all I can from all of you and I have 1 other neighbor down the road that I am going to go visit for information. Glad this site is here and it seems to have so much information right at my finger tips. So off I go to get my finger busy!!

    I am looking forward to getting to know you!

    Paula

    Hey Paula,

    Welcome to BYC! This website has been a great asset to me. Feel free to ask any questions you have. Someone here has been there, done that! I have only had chickens for almost 2 years & no one in my family ever had them, so it was a new learning experience for me.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I have been to the learning center and checking out all the coops.. I wish their were more pictures of the 'inside" the guts of them so to speak.. So off I go still trying to decide how to set up the inside and I still have so many choices on the feeders and water...

    Hoping you are all having a great day too!!
