    Aloha from Hawaii!

    I currently do not own any chickens, but have wanted to for a long time now. Soon I will be in a position to get a few hens potentially, after some research and a lot of work.

    I am an artist living on Oahu in a rural area, and will soon have the space for a coop and run for about three chickens. My main interest in having these critters is to experience raising them and making training attempts (I spend a lot of time home alone, working on my art, so I have a lot of time) while enjoying the benefits of their appetite for centipedes. Up here on the jungle we get a lot of them, and they are apparently a chicken's favorite thing to eat.

    I have a lot of questions, research and planning still ahead, but I thought I would get ahead of the game a little bit and start now. I am really looking forward to this project and finally having my own little flock.

    Thank you everyone!

    Thank you everyone for the warm invitation! I can't wait to learn a little something, and of course I really can't wait to get some chicks. I am super excited to see there are a few other members on the island, who I am sure will have invaluable info for me. Chickens love this climate, we have wild ones all over. They are basically like pidgeons out here.
