Hey there fellow chicken lovers! I have been "lurking" and reading, reading, reading here since last spring, just before I got my first chicks since I was a child. (I grew up on a farm and always had chickens, but I haven't had any since adulthood.) I finally decided to take the plunge and join the forum and maybe "talk" once in a while instead of just reading. Hehe. It is so great to see that so many others get excited about their chickens just like I do! I look forward to continuing to benefit from all the awesome experience that is shared here by everyone and maybe sometime someone can benefit from my (limited) experience as well.
