Hi, everyone. I am new to this forum, but have been "lurking" for a few weeks now. I am struck by the positive tone and the helpfulness of all the members. This, I'm sure, is due to the moderators, who do a fantastic job! I don't have any chickens (yet). DW says she does not like "creatures with beaks and feathers". I'm still working on her, though. I sure do enjoy reading the posts. --David.
