    Hi all! Greetings from Clarksville, TN. I am just starting out with chickens and am ridiculously excited about it. As my screen name says, I now feel "1 step closer" to self sufficiency (my ultimate goal). My husband thinks I am slightly nuts but in a good way. He rolled his eyes when I bought them but turned around and proudly told everyone at work that we have chickens and will be raising our own eggs. LOL

    I hope to see everyone around the forum....have a great day!

    Welcome, 1stepcloser!

    Chickens are ridiculously exciting! I hope that your husband will grow to love them as much as mine has. We spend our evenings relaxing out in the chicken and duck pens. Quality time. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the welcome! I had the day from hell yesterday and I found myself practically RUNNING home to hang with my chickens. My little homestead oasis in the middle of Clarksville. LOL I was a little worried about the neighbors (my chickens are technically contraband) but I have since learned several people in the area have them including one house that turned out to have a duck! (They tried to pass the duck onto us but I need to figure our my chickens first before I go "exotic". LOL
