I used to love to visit this forum and read about everyone's darling chickens. I wrote a blog about my love for my 12 Ornamental Bantams. Each had a name and a distinct personality. Then we had to move from our home and move into a place where I knew my chickens were no longer safe (we lost 2 to neighborhood dogs) so I found a very good home for the rest of them and I sort of dropped out of life, slept a lot, and tried not to think about them. That happened in the Fall of 2009. Today, I am trying hard to come out of mourning so I can do what is necessary to get more chickens and make them safe.
