Hello everyone! I am loving the site and decided to join. I am new to chickens. My sweet pet Indian ringneck flew away a few years ago. I put out missing posts and stapled flyers in the town. Never did find him or have him come back. After waiting 2yrs, I decided I wanted a bird that doesn't Bite and won't fly away. Oh, I pondered many and decided I also wanted a bird that was more functional ...eggs. (My husband thinks I am nuts now and called me chickenlady. I think this may have been his version of cat lady. ??) So I now have 2 little "Cheepy-Cheeps" -- I have a little Easter-egger, Melody and a Buff Orpington, Harmony. We are waiting for the 3rd who should be hatching right now, a Wyandott. I have truly appreciated all the advise and information your site and all you other members have provided. Thanks!!
