    Hi I am a stay at home mommy of two. I love animals and have been interested in raising chickens for eggs for a while now. I used to not like eggs for breakfast until I was given eggs from a local farmer. They have changed my mind on eggs!i am excited to have my own egg to feed my girls. I would like to start this coming spring. I am looking forward to my girls learning how to care for an animal and to give them awesome memories of collecting eggs and being around chickens. :) already so thankful I found BYC!!!

    Welcome chicks4mom.

    Springtime is fast approaching, the chicks will be at the feed stores soon and the hatcheries will start shipping soon. Do you know what you are looking for? There are some great people here who can help you narrow down the choices.

    You may want to post on the California-Northern thread.
