    My name is Naomi and I live in South Central Michigan. Just bought my first hens and oh my gosh they are so exciting!! Got them here New Years Day and have already gotten 7 eggs!!!! I never thought I would get so excited over something so simple!! My neighbor lady had never had fresh eggs and now I can't keep her away....I'll have to keep my eye on her [​IMG] I am hoping to get a Roo here soon

    So far I have 3 ISA Browns, 3 Australorps, and 1 Auraucana. Very friendly girls happy as can be and always talking when I go out to see them.

    Thanks for listening!!

    Welcome Naomi!
    I don't get it either but it is exciting, eggs, baby chicks, and life just seems better when the hens are quietly clucking away!
