Just wanted to introduce myself... No chickens yet, still doing my research, and this seems like an awesome place to get information! I am married with two boys (ages 21 and 23) who have flown the nest. I worked as a vet tech for many years and currently own a pet sitting business here in Mass. I used to own parrots and did some parrot foster care, but now hubby would prefer that any future birds live outside. I love chickens, have a few as pet sitting clients, and would like to get a couple of hens for fresh eggs ~ and for my own amusement! Looking forward to learning a lot from you guys... I am on a few dog forums, this is my first chicken forum!
