    Hey there! I've been lurking on these boards for a while and decided it's time to introduce myself. I live in Brookhaven, NY and I recently took a class about backyard chicken raising and I took the plunge. I'm sure I'll have tons of questions, but reading all your posts has gotten me going so far. I have three Rhode Island Reds.

    Anyone else here from Brookhaven?

    Welcome fellow Long Islander! I live in Brookhaven and have been raising my chickens for a little over a year! And it's been an absolute joy. This group is super helpful and my "go-to" site for questions and answers. Best wishes for you and your RIR's! Feel free to PM me is you want to chat!
