A couple months ago, I got this crazy idea that we should get chickens. I checked out a couple books from the library figuring that I would learn a few things, lose interest and then move on to something else. Now both of my kids (4 and 2) walk up to complete strangers and tell them that we're getting chickens. The 4 year old also goes on to tell them that she's going to gather eggs, feed them and clean up poop. I guess that means I'm committed now! We're hoping to get some chicks in the spring so I guess I have a couple months to figure out what in the heck I'm doing. I've been frequenting BYC for a while now and figured it was time to actually join. So here I am!
