    I just wanted to take a few moments to introduce myself. I'm Mamaquilts (yes I do quilt) and I've been wanting to raise chickens for a long time but where I live will not allow chickens unless you have 2 acres of land.

    I've been lurking here for about a year.

    I have gained a lot of knowledge and understanding of chickens in that time.

    Plus I've read a couple of books about raising chickens. Hoping some time soon to be moving to a more chicken friendly area to raise chickens and other small homesteading items for sell.

    Hi :welcome
    Glad you could join the flock! Many people were lurkers before joining, I did two years of lurking before joining. How lovely if you are able to move to a chicken friendly area and have some chickens. There is a section of the forum for hobbies I'm sure there are some quilting threads on there that you would enjoy, here is the link https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/41/hobbies

    Be sure to ask any questions you may have, everyone here to help. Enjoy BYC :frow

    I can paint though and i love birds of all kinds as well as dogs.

    I think we all lurked first, expecting something to leap out and get us.[​IMG] Well , at least I did. Took 8 mos. till I figured out how to join (not a computer person by nature)
