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!!
