    Hi, I'm Tina and I am trying to be a chicken farmer. It all started with 1 red hen that ran away from her home and adopted my family. We named her "CHICKEN". And now 6 years later I have acquired 42 chickens. I have a small variety.

    Nice to meet you Tina. We hear many stories of chickens that flew the coop, or got dumped in someone's backyard. They always seem happier with their new families. I think it is kismet.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens.

    [​IMG] This is my strange sweet girl. Its kind of an old picture. I was told its not a chicken that its a bird of prey. I think she is different looking and has a goofy beak. Is there anything I can do for the beak? It curves so much she has a hard time getting bugs and other creepy crawly things. And with 41 other chickens following the shovel, I can't hand feed her many worms. Is the curved beak normal and is it going to cause health issues?
