    Yes, there are chicken crazy people all over the world [​IMG] and I´m one of them. I´m 29 and have chickens since about a year. They are a mixture of old-fashioned Swedish farm-breeds from my area, nothing fancy for sure. Calm and cold tolerant small birds, which lay not too many off-white eggs and breed a lot, but I still love them.
    My interest in poultry genetics and how I can improve some of the characteristics of my flock with planned breeding are my main reasons for being here. So I guess you can expect some strange worded questions from me [​IMG] please bear with me, it´s been a long time since typing anything advanced in English and it seems I need to upgrade my vocabulary with some more chicken related words.

    Thanks for the warm welcome [​IMG] I guess I already love this active community and it´s really good to know that there are others with a chicken addiction. No way I would want to get over that addiction [​IMG] I want to enjoy and celebrate it.
    Well, what do chickens look like in Sweden. Mmm they look like... look like... chickens. [​IMG] I´ll post some pictures of my flock when I find out how to do so. Which can take a while, probably.

    Welcome from middle Tennessee. We are truly addicts around here. Need a 12 point program to manage the addiction. Can't believe my husband hasn't put a stop or halt on expansion. Enjoy this site, it is truly educational and fun.
