    Hi everyone! I am new to backyard chickens. Heck, I'm new to country living but have dreamed about it my entire life. After 50 years, I'm finally living it! I dove into backyard chickens before researching like an idiot and am learning the hard way... Sadly I've lost one to being sick, one to a fox and three to my own dogs getting lose. I have also nursed several back to good health. I am looking forward to years of learning and benefiting from my new flock.
