    Hi All,
    I am the proud owner (mother) of 50 1 week old chicks from Meyer Hatchery. I'm not sure exactly what I have yet, I suspect 3-4 Sussex, 4 or more Polish and who knows? I have never had chickens before, but my recent marriage has brought me to a farmer who has raised chickens many times.

    When I'm not staring at the little ones, I am working as a network administrator about an hour from home. I also have the aforementioned husband, dog and 2 cats to look after. I also have 3 grown children who are out on their own (hence the additions to the family?) LOL! When ever a child left home I had to add a new one!

    I also enjoy the farm life, although I feel like "Mrs. Douglas" at times in my ignorance of thing farm-like. I play french horn in a band, and tinker with guitar and mandolin a bit.

    I found the backyard chickens site while thinking about my coming chicks, and I have enjoyed reading the forum and spending time in the learning center. So far the kiddies are doing fine.

    Glad to have the chance to meet you all!

    Hello there and welcome! I also use Meyer for chicks. It's a great hatchery! Wow, 50 is alot to start with, but since you married a farmer, things will go just fine!

    Oh, and I am also a fellow Ohioan, in the Bolivar/Dover/New Philadelphia area!

    Take care,
    Sharon
