    Hi, just wanted to introduce myself. My DH & I are very new at raising chickens. It was weird because I had originally gone to the feed store to get herbs. I wanted a herb garden.

    I've always wanted chickens, but thought DH would not agree. We get there & DH did the math in his head. He thought it would be cheaper to raise chickens. LOL I wasn't about to say no. We now have six beautiful girls. 3 reds, one black & 2 americana (?). Not sure. My girls are just starting to lay eggs. I'm so excited. DH has gotten so attached to them. We never realized how soft they are. Or how heavy they get. It's so cute to watch him go outside to collect eggs.

    Anyway, we both work the same shift. Weird hours. So I may not have time to post a lot... sorry. We both work for the Sheriff's office. He's on the road, I'm a correctional officer. Since I'm right by the radio, I know what calls he goes too. I try not to stress out when I know he is going to something ... like a shooting.

    So our chickens & my vegetable garden are my way to unwind. Destress... Oh I still don't have my herb garden. But the chickens are worth it.

    Howdy neighbor! [​IMG] I'm a newbie to this forum, too.

    I'm across the Washington Parish line, about 25 mi. north of Franklinton. Where in Louisiana are you located?
