    i've wanted chickens for years, and finally brought home our 4 girls this spring. already, and much to my husband's discomfort, i'm dreaming up a new and improved and bigger coop, run, and the addition of many more chicks. and it's all your fault, i should stop coming here so often!

    It is addictive, and unfortunately, everyone on this site is an enabler.....

    What everyone above said. To add to that. Chickens are the gateway drug to other poultry. Ducks, turkeys,.......................

    Quote:I started out along time ago with wood duck houses in the wild. I had about 19 houses that the boy scouts built for me. I put them all over the wetlands where I hunted. In the 19 years of monitioring the houses I had wood ducks everywhere. I started banding them & about that time the bulldozer showed up & that was that. Now, I have chickens & I am starting to raise quail.

    We call "Chicken" when we see them in movies. If we see a coop in a neighborhood we cruise it slowly every so often trying to get a glimpse of the chickens and name the breed. I work on presentation when I take a plate of treats out to my girls. SOMEBODY STOP ME!!!
