Hello, I have been on the website for a few days now, and decided it's time to register... I had NO idea there was such a huge interest in raising chickens! That being said, at our state farm show this year, there were so many beautiful chickens on display. I KNOW next year I will be spending a lot more time in the chicken area!!! We will be getting our FIRST ever chicks on April 9, but I don't know what breed they will be. I guess we'll find out! Thank you, already, for everything I have learned! I am also so, so happy that there are so many other people out there like me with this interest - not much interest around this area (that I know of).
