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. cheers!
