    Hey All,

    Ratsika here from southern Ontario. I've been wanting chickens for years now but the city I live in banned them. They actually passed a special by-law to ban them! Well I'm finally moving out of the city to a small house in the country and looking forward to finally being able to have a few birds.
    I currently have some rats, two dogs, two cats, and a geriatric snake. Chickens will fit right in :p
    In glad to be here at BYC and can use all the help I can get.

    Thanks,

    Ratsika

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. You may want to post on the "Canadians, check-in-here thread." You may even find other chicken folks living near you. Lots of BYCERS in Canada.
