Hi, all! I've been on another chicken forum for a while and just found this one -- it looks great! I only have 2 chooks. Clarice was a stray. Yup--the neighbors moved and abandoned her 2 years ago. She hung out w/ my horses that first summer, but I was always worrying about her, so I made her a fancy house, got a run, and the new neighbors helped me catch her. Then I found another chicken needing a home, Olivia: and that's my flock. I wish I could let them free-range during the day, but my place is very near the road and b/c of the creek and woods behind, there isn't really a way to keep the chickens away from danger. They seem very happy, though. I'll post pix of my coop (the old one and the new, huge one I just finished) in the coop section. Just wanted to introduce myself! I'm sure I'll have tons of questions.
