What have I got myself in to!!! I think I have read every article on this site about raising chickens. Some 3 or 4 times. I didn't think there was that much to raising chickens. Has it deterred me? Not in the least. Am looking more anxious than ever to get our first chicks, whenever we decide which kind to get. Either the end of April or May. Along with my 2 large aquariums, 3 fish ponds, 3 cats, 4 dogs, a wife and a business to run, I think I will be busy.
