    Hello, all!

    I got my first two chickens about six weeks ago, and every day when I Google a new chicken question, Google sends me to BYC. This must be the place to be, so here I am!

    I am a SAHM to two boys, ages 5 and 3, and hubby teaches and coaches high school basketball and football (which means that Monday I became a football widow and will remain a single parent until the end of basketball season!). We've been living frugally and aiming for debt-free simplicity while apartment-dwelling, and purchased our half-acre homestead in May. It's small, but it's a start, and it needs lots of work. The fun part was getting a couple of free chicks off craigslist, complete with their own tractor and supplies, absolutely free!

    Now I'm heading over to the breed/sexing forum to find out if anyone has an idea what I've got! Thanks for all the great information!

    Welcome to BYC, you will come here more often then you first thought. Its where you can talk about chickens all day if you want and no one here thinks you are crazy....maybe a lil chicken crazy but thats ok, we all are!

    Welcome! I am new too but this seems to be an absolute wealth of poultry knowledge! Good luck identifying those chicks and soon we know you will accumulate more as they are *addictive* to say the least!
