hello everyone, i am new to chickens as of 8 months ago. My favorite chicken Maggie was attacked and being chased for the kill by two dogs in my friends yard. After chasing maggie for 2 hrs she caught her and brought her into work (luckily we work at a vet clinic). so then i came home with maggie, she is a Favorelle...i believe due to her feathered legs and extra toes!! she is just the best chicken ever!!! so after nursing her back to health i got her a companion (silkie) and now i have two chicks (delaware and buff orpington) being raised to hopefully be part of maggie's flock...right now she thinks i am her flock!! anyways, i am now an official chicken addict!! these creatures are just the best!! so funny to watch in the yard! I love the site you have going here, its great, i have been a reader for about 8 months now and now i am a member!!!
