    Clyde NY
    I live in Clyde NY. it is 12 degress out as i type[ inside warm] Chickens are in coop,not in house.to be let out at 11;00. I love my chickenS[except when they are nasty to each other] Give me a break! it is a small community. we are not going anywhere! can they not behave!! They are free range[when they want to be] [not at night, TO BED!] welll, i do have older ones who rule the roost, and stay out of the safety of a closed door. yes, some have suffered for there independence.... alas... My opionion is !! everyone needs a chicken or two or preferably ,many. Nothing like sitting around,all over yard, and watching life go on around you. the movies i could write, The sitcoms that would never end. YOU ALL KNOW! but i wonder how it is for those that need be kept penned?? i do meat chickens,penned, through the spring-fall. i move their pen 2x day. i see their life at feeding times[roosters to block first] but i don't reflect on their society as much. so those of you who have only penned chickens.i feel sorry for. And that is my intro. not to offend, but to understand. i know i have no knowledge to contribute but will glean from your wealth. may we all support the gentle life. wait rooster attack here! he is at my legs! get broom!!

    G’Day from down under donna12345 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Great intro!

    I hope you enjoy BYC. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
