I've been using BYC ever since I got the hair brained idea this Spring, that I needed chickens in my life. Turns out it was a pretty good idea. Who knew chickens could be so endearing? Today when I went out for my evening chicken bed check/ lock down , I found that my EE AKA Eggers had flown out of my yard and was sitting on the fence in the alley. The alley is a thoroughfare for local Coyotes and Bobcats and not a good place for frisky chickens, so I yelled "Eggers what the #*? are you doing over there? GET BACK HERE!" and to my surprise she flew back to me. After I installed her in the coop I instantly turned to BYC for wing clipping advice and decided that this is too good a resource not to officially join. So here I am with Eggers, 4 BA's, 1 Dominique, and a GLW.
