    My husband and I are relocating our family to Kentucky! We live in Pa and want to start a farm. We have been hiding our chickens in our backyard in a residential area for about 4 months and love having them so much we decided to move. I love this site and have referred to it so many times. I believe today we are getting our first egg. One of our girls has been acting weird and thanks to this site I believe it's because she is about to lay! Thanks for all the tips.

    Greetings from Kansas and :welcome. Pleased you joined our community. Wow! I've heard of folks moving from town to country because they love chickens, but you're the first that I've heard of relocating states! :D. That is true chicken dedication. Best of luck and enjoy your farm and all that comes with it!

    Welcome to BYC. It's great to have you!

    Moving so you can expand your flock... sounds like something I'd do if I didn't already live in the country!

    Good luck on your move, you will learn very quickly what chicken math is! [​IMG] And, first egg? [​IMG]The first egg is always exciting no matter how long you have had them...I am waiting for a first with one of mine too!

    Ha! Not just for the chickens...looking to slow our life down a bit also. We live outside of Philadelphia and and I feel like we are always thinking 5 days ahead instead of in the now. As soon as we got our chicks I saw my whole family slow down and focus on something other then what's next. It got me to thinking. So that's why the move. Also I have lived here my whole life but have never felt more at home then when we visited Kentucky!
