    I no longer am able to raise chickens due to health. I joined because this brings back so many wonderful memories of raising chickens and rabbits as a kid learning from my Dad. So if you folks don't mind I would like to live vicariously through your stories and perhaps once and a while I can contribute some of my experiences of the wonderful times I had with my girls and boys!

    You are most welcome here. BYC even has a section for "Pictures and stories of my chickens," If you like you can post photos there and tell stories about the birds you used to have. A lot of folks are unable to have birds for one reason or another. BYC also have threads for hobbies like gardening, knitting, etc. There are also chat groups - where the topics changes constantly - sometimes it's even about chickens.

    You are certainly welcome to join in on all the chicken chat and social happenings around here. Believe me, you won't be the only member without birds...it happens for various reasons. Since you have experience with poultry, you might have plenty of tips to pass on too.

    Make yourself at home, it's nice to have you here!
