    My name is Angie, I live in Arkansas. Last spring I decided to have some backyard chickens. I was a nurse and injured my back, so I thought this would be something to keep me occupied. I had tried painting, learning guitar and just writing. None of that seemed to keep my interest very long. I have 6 chickens currently. I built the coop from scrap wood. We had to buy the wire, I ran into spending more money than I thought, I do intend on doing upgrades to the coop this coming spring. Nice to be meeting more chicken lovers .I look forward to sharing information and pictures, and meeting new friends here. I will post more pics later. Thanks!

    Greetings from Kansas, Angie, and :welcome! Pleased you joined our flock. Gorgeous birds! Sounds like your chickens have been very therapeutic.
    Thought I'd mention if you'd like to chat with fellow Arkie poultry keepers, find the AR thread in this link: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you
    Best wishes!

    Welcome to BYC, Angie. The birds in your profile pic are beautiful. Wyandottes? I got a blue Wyandotte chick this spring, and she has turned out to be so beautiful... just started laying recently too, so that's always exciting. Come back and check in on granny's thread next time you are on. [​IMG]

    G’Day from down under Angie Es [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

  10. Welcome Angie! I'm from NW Arkansas and new to chickens too, this year. I have 9 and they are almost all laying now. They are very therapeutic I think [​IMG] You'll enjoy learning about all the different breeds from so many friendly people on here (I just joined in November) Enjoy your chicken adventure [​IMG]
