    just wanted to say hello to all yous!

    i am a new member to the forum and fairly new at raising our girls.
    we got them in june of this year and 2 of them have starting laying,
    just last week actually! since tuesday we've gotten 4 eggs... yay!

    we (me, my boyfriend and his 10 yr old son) have a flock of 5 crazy but absolutely lovely chickens, all a bit weird and different in breed. we love them and try to keep them as
    happy as possible! what a thrill, i must say!

    i hope to hear and learn all sorts of awesome chicken stories!

    i will post some pics of our girls soon.

    Howdy neighbor!

    I work in Albuquerque and live in Valencia County where I have 20 chickens that are two months old - an assortment from Ideal Poultry. I'm still trying to figure out which breeds may be reppresented in the flock. I have at least one rooster - he just started to crow! [​IMG]

    We are also raising rabbits. I'm interested in local food in general, farmers' markets, CSA, etc.

    THe 20 younsters are my first chickens, but my boyfriend's parents keep chickens and rabbits - so, naturally, he thinks he's an expert. [​IMG] BYC has been a very helpful and interesting source of information and ideas.

    You may want to check out a long string of messages from and about New Mexico - I found it by using "New Mexico" as a search term.

    Best wishes,
