I'm a total newbie to this whole chicken thing. It all started about 2 months ago, I was going to garage sales with my mother in-law when I suddenly spotted a chicken rummaging around in a bush in this ladies front yard. I, the animal lover that I am said, "look, it's a chicken!" The lady must have heard me and said "I have a coop and many more in the back, want to come see?" After that, I was hooked. I was going to buy a coop and get me some chickens and have delicious eggs for breakfast every morning! I currently have 6 chickens, all of which are too young to lay but a couple have got to be getting close. I think. I absolutely love having them in my life and a part of my small but always growing farm. Once I started doing some research I came across this website so I figured with all the great info it holds, that I would join to start asking some of my own questions.
