    Hi everyone! I started my fowl journey almost a year ago. I’ve always wanted chickens and they came to me as a surprise last May. I have chickens, guineas, and turkeys. I have basically named all the ones that I can tell apart and have a huge attachment to them all. I just got a few new babies to add and plan on adding more soon. I love on a small farm with my birds along with my fella, a few horses, a few dogs, and a few barn cats.

    Anytime I needed questions answered about the birds, I always googled it and somehow always ended up getting the best advice from this site. So, I finally decided to make my fowl love official by becoming part of this extremely helpful and supportive community! I really look forward to connecting with the people here!

    Hey welcome! I just joined up for the same reason- always end up on this site so might as well, huh. Sounds like you have a pleasant home :) What type of bird are you enjoying the most?
