Hi there! I have been in love with chickens for a very long time. I have a very small farm, and have 24 chickens at the moment. I have had house roosters before, I have had Emus (sort of like a 200 pound chicken) that is their picture on my avatar. I have camped out in my field in tents with my chickens. My chickens had their own tent. I have been a helper on a very large scale chicken farm, just filling in when needed. I was chickenless for about a year of so at one time, and every day, I thought..... Life just ain't the same with out chickens! (After the disaster of my neighbors dog getting all of my chickens, I knew I had to just NOT have them around till the cycle of him getting out and into my yard was taken care of) I just didn't want to have them to get munched on by that dog! SO ...... I have chickens again, and Life is MUCH better!
