I'm so excited, almost to the point of obsessed For the past two months I have lurked on this forum and have finally decided to become a member. My tolerant husband and I are teachers who live on a farm with four Norwegian Fjord Horses, an old pony, five dogs and two cats. This spring chickens will join our family. The chicken coop has been purchased and our spring pullets are incubating right now. Since weather dictates the chicken addition must wait until spring, I've entertained myself with eight chicken books ordered from Amazon. The education this has provided will at least keep me from making unhealthy decisions. Come on spring!
