In the Brooder
- Nov 4, 2018
I hope I am posting this new member intro in the right place! This is our second year with a small, mixed breed backyard flock of 6 hens. My daughter wanted to get some 4H chickens, and now they are a big part of my life. I work for the USDA-NRCS and have an MS in Wildlife Ecology, for which I studied whooping cranes. For someone with a background in birds, I feel like I am always worrying about something new with these chickens. I adore them, but I feel like they'll be the death of me! I am so glad that there is an online community where I can get insight from more experienced chicken keepers.
