Hello! I'm new here (posting, although I have been reading to glean chicken wisdom from you wonderful people for a few months) and living in Central, AL. We recently moved into the country and are excited to start the country life we have dreamed of for so long. First animals to arrive were our 15 baby chicks this past week! We are so thrilled to welcome these adorable fluff balls and I cannot wait to watch them grow. Our plans are just to raise our hens for eggs and use their manure in our gardens. This website has been such a source of knowledge for me for which I am truly grateful!!!
