Hello all you BYC folks! For 3 years now when I search for answers the majority of the time it brings me to a BYC thread! I thought it was about time to have an account...took me long enough lol. So here I am..Anyways I am from New Hampshire and am mama hen to now only 5 chickens. We started out with 6 and added 4 and through the 3 short years of chicken owning we have lost 5 I never knew how hard it would be to go through the loss of what really does become part of your family. But on the other hand it brings me joy in taking care of them. They each have there own personality. And the rewards are eggsellent Other then the flock my fiance and I have an 11 year old son, a dog Ella and a leopard gecko named Rocky. I am fortunate enough to be a stay at home mom and my family and pets sure keep me busy. I love gardening, reading, family day trips and taking pics. I look forward to learning more from all the people here at BYC. Have a great day everyone!!
