Hello everyone! I do not own chickens since the homeowners association doesn't allow them, but I am interested in getting quail in the spring(since they are the closest form of chicken). I have always had a BIG interest in chickens, and actually one day I got three fertilized buff Orpington eggs and I hatched only one chick (that turned out to be a gorgeous hen). That was probably the best experience I have had in my life! However, we had to give the chick(Ivy) to a friend that had chickens, since we couldnt keep her in our neighborhood,but I definitely want to hatch more chickens, and someday my dream will come true and I will have chickens! So, I want to hear about all of your Guy's experiences with raising chickens and how fun and rewarding it is for you!
