Just wanted to say hi to everyone. I've been reading for months now but thought I had better join so I can ask the millions of questions I have. I'm a city girl that moved to the country a year ago and so chickens are new to me but I just love them!! I have absolutely no experience though and am just winging it so far. A couple of days ago I sent my husband into the coop to get my sick hen out. I wasnt sure if she was dead or very sick..or what. She got mad, started pecking him and puffing up and it finally dawned on me that she is just broody! I guess (I hope) I will have baby chicks soon. So I'm kind of in a panic to figure out what to do when they arrive and how to get ready for them. Love the site and look forward to meeting lots of new friends.
