    Not new to chickens, but new to the site. I've been using this site for a while now to find answers to my farm bird related questions and figured I should probably just create an account. I'm glad I did! Its nice to see that I'm not the only "crazy chicken lady" who treats her birds like her dogs and cats. I've been around chickens all my life, but until acquiring a new flock at my current home, I never really became attached to them. I currently have 11 chickens, 8 of which were raised from babies, and all of them have names to suit. I also have 2 ducks (Stella and Sam) who really think they're turkeys and are best friends with Deci and Tom, my oddball turkey couple.

    What part of KS are you in? I grew up in the NE part, around Topeka & Lawrence. Hope this winter wasn't too rough on you.

    There's a KS state thread you may enjoy checking out. Do a search for Consolidated Kansas and you should find it.

    Thanks for joining us, it's nice to have you here!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. Nice to know your turkeys and ducks are welcoming to other species. Animals usually get along better than people.

    Thanks for the warm welcome! I will check out the Kansas thread for sure. I live just west of Wichita. The winter here was pretty nice this year!
