    Hi everyone! In continuation of the title...I finally joined backyard chickens because of a positive experience I wanted to share...on another thread.

    We have a couple dozen chickens that just started laying, that was so exciting! I have learned quite a lot on this site and so greatful for the wisdom. I finally found out what chicken math means, lol. My daughter is the resident chicken whisperer and just received a new egg collecting apron that her granny made. Granny has been loving her pasture raised eggs...[​IMG]

    We're also trying to incubate Saxony duck eggs.

    Hi again, hope to make friends, online(and it would sure be fun to find locals in my area, too, we're the only critter raisers I know) and contribute when I can!

    Rachel

    Thanks All!

    She hasn't sold any, this was her first apron. I could ask her! It turned out pretty cool.

    My daughter sure does love that apron.

    Ha! Forgot to say where we are...We're in the very most north central part of Illinois. Thanks for the link and reminder.

    I haven't posted on a group in years
    ...hopefully I did not cause confusion with my reply, I'll need to refigure out how to reply and note who it is to.

    Thanks again for the warm welcome. :)
