    Hi everyone,
    I finally joined !I have been a lurker here on and off since 2002, I have hatched and raised chickens both in a bator and under hens, and many green singing finches,sweet birds put learned alot about eggbinding. I am finally retireing from work (librarian) and can get back to chickens:)[​IMG] my first true avian love. I have order my egg chicks and my DH is working on the coop-run. (I design and paint, he builds and tells me what will and won't work.) A good partnership for 40+ years.
    All week I have been trying to find cochin bantys locally. We just love those sweeties. will now search on line. Our climate is dry 10 to 12 inches a year and cold winters -10, hot dry summers 102 - 105. very windy at times. I am so excited to get back to chickens !!!!
