    I have joined to aid in the learning process. My granddaughter is turning 3 this weekend and we are giving her an experience for her birthday! She is getting chicken coop, three lovely ladies and all the fixings. :). I have never raised chickens before, and luckily I have a great resource for information, as my best friend has become a very experienced chicken lady, lol. My granddaughter loves visiting my friends place and helping to collect eggs and pet the chickens. As a child that absolutely loves animals, I can think of no better way to fill the space of having an animal, learning to care for them which will increase responsibility and work ethic, and provide our household with eggs. I can't wait to get started.

    Welcome! [​IMG]What a lovely gift! What great experiences for years to come! My best early childhood memories were on my Great Aunt Mary's farm. Chickens, cows, calves, barn cats, snapping beans on the porch...I learned very young to love and care about animals. I never outgrew it. You are an awesome Grandma. [​IMG]I look forward to seeing updates on the threads.

    Welcome to Backyard Chickens, what a wonderful grandma you are. What breeds are you getting her? I hope you will update with photos of her /chicks/ coop. I bet she will be over the moon.[​IMG]

    Peanit, you should start your own thread on New Members Intro, so your posts will get the attention and response you deserve. Hi for now, full welcome when you post your own intro.[​IMG]
