    Greetings Kity5, Welcome to BYC! :frow
    When they aren't laying eggs, they're pooping! And in between that, they provide lots of entertainment.
    You have a lot to get used to, and a lot to look forward to. We're here for you at BYC! :highfive:

    This latest recall from food lion was my last straw, my great grandma, mama, used to keep the chickens at my grandparents house in Morehead City. I know what rodents do to chickens and those were the days when samanilla (?) had not yet figured how to get into the eggs. This city girl has lots to learn so looks like I found a perfect plaice here.
