    Hello! I am new to raising chickens, had them growing up as a kid and remember how fun they were. Finally talked my husband into letting me build a small coop and obtain no more than 10 egg layers. I don't have any chickens yet, I want to educate myself and be fully prepared before I do!
    I'm excited for fresh eggs and I love animals so I'm excited to add some new friends to our family. We have 2 teen daughters who are also excited! We live on a country lake but we don't have a big yard so hopefully I don't become addicted to chickens!

    I found BYC through a search engine as I was looking for answers to my many new chicken mama questions!!
  2. Hi! Welcome! I saw your name and wondered if you were a basketball fan. I moved from so cal to Oregon. Go Blazers!

    I am crazy about chickens but have managed to focus a bit and even gave up three!

    Welcome! This is a great place to educate yourself. I joined just a year ago, when backyard chickens became legal in my town, and have been reading and studying and only now have my first chicks.
