    Hi I am new and am looking forward to learning about my chickens. About a year ago I inherited my dads flock of hens. He gave me 7 and I have since then added 4 more and one turned out to be a roaster and so now I have 5 babies too. My flock is growning and I love them very much. I also have one Turkey who's name is Gabby and she is my friend.She follows me around and I think she thinks she is human:) We talk a lot and I really enjoy he company (yes I know she is a turkey;) I am hoping to learn more about my chickens and turkey so I can keep a healthy flock and enjoy them for a long time:)

    yes, ask away.as far a as relpys go, i think there are times when every one and thier dog ( or chicken ) is online and you can get flooded with hello's and info and other times it slows a bit, but don't worry it'll pick right back up again. im sure in 1 day you will have several answers :)

    Yeah, you did that right!
    Usually if you're still finding your way round the mods move your thread to a section where it'll get more replies. But you found it yourself, so that's cool. :p

    Hope you find all the info you need here, and enjoy the site! :frow

    :welcome
