    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Jenn our family (my husband and our four children) just adopted four silkie chicks (a blue, a black, a buff and a partridge). We've never kept chickens before, but I've been researching them for a long time now, we buy the Chickens! magazine regularly and are in the midst of moving to a farm because we'd like 'turn back the dial' a bit and do some farming. This means we're currently harbouring our chicks in our backyard (okay, our bedroom right now, they're only two - three weeks old) until the move. We are loving having them, I knew I wanted chickens - for reasons I couldn't justify - but they are just SO much fun [​IMG] We're already way too in love with them and want more. I've realized now that they are addicted. I think the BYC should have a warning banner about the addictiveness of chicks and chickens!

    Can't wait to absorb as much information as I can from all the great posts around here. Information sites are great, but interactive sites with real people and real chickens is awesome!

    Thanks for letting me join,

    Jenn

    You're in the right spot, lots of info here. Still searching myself to a class on Chicken Math, evidently I failed it the last time I counted. I have 75 3 weeks old in my garage...... [​IMG]
