    Hello! My name is Dina and I am new here. Thank you for accepting me. We have four gals now and would like to get four more in the spring. We have fallen in love with our girls. What a blessing chickens are. They teach us to slow down, appreciate the simple things, be outside and laugh at their silly antics. Oh yeah and they poop ALOT. I was not expecting that much poo. We are composting for the spring garden. [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC, Dina, I am so glad you've joined us! I had to smile at your poo comment, I think the amount of poo that chickens put out is something that surprises a lot of newbies. I am so glad you are enjoying your little flock so much, they really are a fun animal to have around!

    G’Day from down under DinaMarie [​IMG] Welcome!

    I couldn’t agree more .. chickens are the best therapy!!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
