    Hi everybody! I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Linda. I've been married for 11 years to my wonderful husband Don. I have been blessed with a 16 year old son and a 22 year old daughter. I am also a mother to an assortment of Japanese Bantams,1 Partridge Silkie,2 Swedish ducks,2 rabbits, and 2 guinea pigs. Since this site is for chickens, I'll focus on just them. We have been raising chickens for 10 years now and they have had a tremendous impact on our lives! We raise them for strictly companionship and to give them a happy, loving home. We call them our babies because they are so much more to us than just chickens. In fact, because of them we all became vegetarians!I have done a lot of internet research due to our babies getting ill or just simply wanting to learn more about them.In doing so, I always end up here at BackYard Chickens! You guys have been helpful throughout the years and I thank you!

    Thank you! I plan on checking everything out. I actually posted on Emergency, Injury, Disease Thread because I have a Japanese Bantam hen whom is very sick. I would be thankful for help and suggestions from anyone for my little girl! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    Thank you all for making me feel so welcome! You're all very kind.[​IMG]I am just wondering if I am doing this right. I posted an introduction of myself which I am getting many nice replies. I also posted my situation about my sick hen under Emergencies,injured, and cures thread but have not received any replies. I realize it may take a while but I just wanted to make sure I did it correctly.I am very concerned about her and I want to be sure everyone can read my post so I can receive some suggestions! Thank you all! Happy Clucking!!!

    Hi and welcome to BYC - I'm sure you'll get some replies throughout the course of the day on the injuries thread - Sundays seem to be a busy day for people so they may not have access to their computers etc.

    I hope someone can help you out soon!
