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.
