    Just wanted to introduce myself and say 'hi.' I have been lurking here for a month or two and decided to join. I am new to the chicken world - picked up my first chicks from Tractor Supply and now want to get more involved. Learned that you get what you pay for :) I don't want to be a chicken snob, but be the best chicken mom I can.
