Hello everyone,
I have been reading the forums for a few weeks now trying to learn as much as I can about chickens. For some reason I would always read the forums but had not actually joined yet, I am not sure why. But today I starting thinking that this is the best place to be in order to meet and interacted with others who also enjoy raising chickens, etc.

We live in a small neighborhood in South Carolina and although we are pretty much in the city we are very lucky that our one little neighborhood happens to not be within the lines of any of the city's / town's around us - only in the county limits. Being only in the county allows us to have much more freedoms with chickens, rabbits, ducks, etc. Of course I only recently learned this. All of the neighborhoods that border ours is within the city or town limits.

The house directly behind ours lives in a different neighborhood and belongs to the city and they have more regulations. I got a few funny looks from them when we were putting in our chicken coop / run and rabbit housing. :)

Anyway, I am looking forward to meeting everyone and exciting about learning more.

Nikki

Thank you all for the welcomes. I will have to get some pictures up soon, maybe one day this week. Right now we have 6 red sex link hens, 1 pekin duck (in with the chickens), 5 rabbits, and just got the raised garden beds in and started this weekend for the garden. We are still working on finishing touches with the garden paths and I want to redo the rabbit boxes, but we will get there. :) Most of my family just kind of laughs at me, calling me a little farmer. But I am sure they will stop laughing when I start giving them fresh eggs, ect. My husband and children love it as much as I do though.
