Hello! I don't own any chickens yet, but I have been thinking about getting some for eggs and companionship. I must admit, some of the health problems I have read about chickens having are intimidating, so I am still mulling things over in that regard. In the meantime, however, I am writing a story that chickens play a huge part in. I have done a little research online, and decided I needed to join this forum so I can learn more. Right now I am interested in chicken shows, specifically in how they are run, how the chickens are caged/shown, and how the owners take care of them at the shows. I have really enjoyed reading about the different breeds of chickens, but also just the everyday stories and photos that people post about their birds on Facebook. Thanks for letting me join this group so I can learn more.
