    I haven't had chickens since I was a kid and rescued the neighbor's flea ridden chicks. Mom never has forgotten me bringing fleas into the house. A few years ago we moved to the country and now I am set to start again (minus the fleas). I have been chicken crazy for a while now, but I you ask my husband he will just tell you I am crazy altogether.

    I am convincing my husband that the chickens will help keep the grasshoppers down that are eating everything in the yard, including all my vegetables!

    Thanks for welcoming me.

    Hi Faye....welcome! That's the reason I got chickens....grasshoppers were eating all my flowers! I borrowed a couple of chickens from a farmer and never gave them back. They took care of the grasshoppers alright and the slugs, and everything else in sight!! I now have 16 and not a bug in sight!![​IMG]

    It's an easy place to lurk!!! Morning, night and day! I'm pretty sure a lot of significant others think they are just (chicken) crazy, mine does!
