    Hello all! [​IMG]

    I recently discovered that my town allows chickens so I started researching my options and came across this wonderful site.

    A short background on myself: I grew up on the family farm and still help out my brother when I can. We had cattle, alpacas, goats, sheep, dogs, and cats. We didn't have chickens growing up though, so this will be a new experience for me.
