    I'm excited to be part of the Backyard Chickens group! I currently have 7 hens that are mixed breeds, my husband and I are fairly new to raising chickens, since we got our girls this June. It's been so much fun watching them grow, and I love getting fresh eggs everyday, that it made us want to grow our little homestead of 2.5 acres this year. We are looking at getting baby chicks in April 2017, I know I will be on this form looking for advice.

    My husband and I started our own Facebook Page called Michael's Mini Farmette, because wanted to share with others the growth of our mini farmette. You are more than welcome to follow along: https://www.facebook.com/michaelsminifarmette/

    Does anyone else have their own Facebook Page that they post about their chickens and animals? I love watching others show what they do! Are there other on here from Minnesota? I would love to hear from you!

    Thank you all!

    -Jeanie Michaels

    G’Day from down under jeanmichaels [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, I am not very active on Facebook either. Chickens sure are fun and each one has his or her own little chickenality [​IMG]

    I hope you enjoy BYC. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
