Hello BackYard Chickens users! I decided to make this account to help myself and my family raise our chickens. We recently had our first tragedy - my favourite chicken, EmberDragon, died and it was a complete shock. So I decided it was a great idea to join a reliable site to help us prevent any more fatalities. A lot of my friends, who are farm folk, don't really see the big deal over one chicken dying (although we only have two now), but to us, our lovely little hens are a part of our family. I'm not sure if we'll get another hen. Probably in the future, but we want to ensure our other two hens are healthy and happy. ^_^ I hope to learn lots here about my girls, and this is also for my mum and aunt whose chicken owning experience is pretty scarce. Hope to have fun here!
