    Last week I signed on to BYC because I needed reassurance on my handling of my chicken after a hawk attack. What a great response!!! Two years ago I ordered 3 chickens, a Barred Rock, RIR, and an Australorp. Last year I bought 2 more, an Aurocona, and a Pearl White Leghorn. My chickens are city chics as we live in a small city. I have my chickens for eggs, fertilizer, and (an added bonus) great entertainment. I just have to get better at composting and vegetable gardening.

    I've been married 32 years, 1 son (married), 1 daughter (married), 2 granddaughters. I belong to a local garden club, play the harp, and work part time for a pediatrician.

    I would like to put an addition on my coop and get a couple more chickens. I'm enjoying this hobby immensely!
