    Hi, my sister is on the verge of wanting chickens - she is a super sweet person and would be a great chicken mom. I think if she went on here and read some friendly encouragement she would be that much further along in her chicken adventure. She lives in a nice older subdivision in Tampa and could probably have a couple of hens in her pretty, fenced backyard. She is quite interested in my chickens and I think we all just need to send some encouragement her way. Thanks, everyone! [​IMG]

    I have my first backyard flock of 8 hens (all different breeds) going on 8 weeks old and I am so happy I got them. They are so fun and we just finished building a pretty decent run onto thier premade coop and now I am planning for planting by it for next spring.

    I LOVE my chickens! I think they are the best pets ever. I am also looking forward to adding to my flock next spring... gonna squeaze in 2 ducks, too.

    I hope that helps in some way.

    Let's just sit her down and show her pictures and videos of the cutiest hens, most glorious roos, and happiest chicken parents we can find! Then maybe she will make up her mind...
