    Greetings from Michigan! My name is Laurel and am in my 40's starting to live my dream of owning chickens & living a more healthy & holistic lifestyle. I have 2 week old chicks, 2 astralorps and 4 ISA Browns (maybe) & I have so many questions! Heard this site is THE place to learn about chickens. Can't wait to meet the rest of y'all.

    Very nice to meet you Laurel. I don't think it's humanly possible to meet us all (over 390,000 bycers around the globe) but, starting out with those on your state thread, is very doable. Just put your state name in the search box and it will pop up. Glad you joined us at Backyard chickens [​IMG]
