To be quite honest I've frequented BYC for over a year now, and finally decided it was time. I've learned a lot from this site. As you can never know enough, or all, about chicken care. It was a huge help when "The Great Lice Epidemic of Terror" occurred last year. Something I had never dealt with after over 15 years of raising chickens. As my user name implies, I am totally bias in my love for silkies. I've tried a few other breeds, but I always come back to them! So hello everyone! Looking forward to finally chiming in on the conversations.
