    I just acquired a tiny flock of 4 laying hens, quite by accident, since they sort of "came with the house.":) They were there when we moved into our new house, and we happily agreed to take them over. It's a wonderful thing, except I don't know the first thing about caring for chickens! I've been reading up on the subject since yesterday, so I think I'm up on the basics, such as feeding, watering, and providing suitable shelter. I'm hoping that through time I'll get more knowledge and my insecurity will disappear. I very much want to succeed and and for my chickens to be happy!

    I look forward to interacting with this great community.
