I'm very excited to finally be a part of backyard chickens! I've had chickens since March 2017, and have used this website for almost all of my chicken questions. Well, i started out with one RIR rooster, and five game hen crosses, and now, I have 31 chickens. My "babies" follow me around, eyeing my hands for food, especially grapes and apples. Each of them have a place in my heart! In addition to chickens, i have a Manchester/ Rat terrier, a Russian Blue mix kitten, and two goldfish. My dream (however far fetched) is to show my chickens in the fair and one day develop my own breed (if i ever acquired enough money to do so). Even if i don't, i still enjoy keeping chickens, and watching them express their personalities! Im glad to be a part of this family!
