    My name is tam, and I am a chicken-aholic.

    I am not new to chickens at all! I grew up on a small farm with always at least ten rhode island red hens! But I have never had my own flock. I do not currently have any of my own chickens, as we currently live in an apartment.

    We are buying our first house, and I am hoping to get a few hens to join our family!

    I have two-and-a-half year old twins. (boy and girl). I have two indoor only cats and a great old cavalier king Charles spaniel mix dog. Oh and a husband! [​IMG]

    I am still researching chickens (beyond my tried and true), but am stuck on Easter eggers and barnefelders! [​IMG]

    Definitely looking forward to learning from everyone here! Thanks!!

    Welcome to the BYC forum....

    Best of luck with the plans for house and chickens. It will be so fun for your twins to grow up with chickens..... While you are researching, consider goldsexlinks, (and the other hybrid sexlinks too)--- they are wonderful birds.
    Looking forward to seeing you around the forum.

    ahhhhh sunny California, and tonight the tomatoes will be killed off here---due to 31-degrees.
