    Hey, everybody! I am new to this site, but I have been lurking about for about a week now before I decided to join. I simply LOVE chickens! They are one of my favorite animals, alongside dogs. But I'm a huge animal lover in general, I just happen to find chicken really interesting and cute to watch. I don't own any chickens, but I would really love too. Anyways, I wanted to say hello to everyone and looking forward to chatting with people who chickens as much as I do! [​IMG]

    You should look into getting backyard chickens, there more fun than any animal/fowl lover could imagine. Easier care than dogs and just a little more trouble than a house cat.

    Glad you joined the forums, truly hope you'll get your own flock.

    Thank you! I love my dogs, I currently have two goldens one being a 4 months old and the other 12 years old. I did have a yellow lab but we loss her to cancer back on July 19 of this year. I would love to raise some hens but my mother isn't on board with that idea and plus the neighborhood we live in don't allow it. But I still want them! [​IMG]

    Sorry, if you can't get support in getting chickens, then you'll have to wait til you are able to….but welcome, and learn….One day, if ya really want them , then you will.

    Maybe if your family saw tiny seramas - bred in Malaysia to be house pets. They would let you have one or two indoors. They accept confinement well and will happily sit in a chair and watch tv with you or stare at the screen when you play video games. People could easily mistake them for some kind of rare parrot. Google pictures of seramas/serama chicks you won't believe how tiny they are.

    There is a video on you tube, I think called" Phillip fetches,"he is a serama rooster that actually runs and fetches rubber bands. His owners also dress up some of their birds in home made costumes. Oh well. There is a great thread on BYC called "People with house chickens." it's getting more popular every day and neighbors don't know what's going on so don't make the complaints. Seramas even can live in a large parrot cage - when not out playing.
