    Just a quick hello :)

    I just joined the forums after a co-worker told me about this site, which is awesome! Lots of good tips for the chicken enthusiast!!

    I'll have to cruise through the site and see what I can find, lots of great links!

    My wife and I bought a small hobby farm in northern wisconsin about a year and a half ago. We've got just under a dozen chickens so far (buff orpington, helmet guinea & naked necks). We'll have broilers within the month.

    Everything is going well so far! The wife & I are veterinarians by trade, and had to treat a guinea that kept getting egg bound for a few weeks. But not everything ends well :( But all-in-all for a newbie chicken owner, it's all going well :)

    Great site, glad its here!

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

    I'd be more than happy to help out where I can! Now I just have to find my way to the medical forum....!
