    Hello everyone. I have been wanting chickens for years but didn't want them in a suburb. Last year we moved to a home with 5 acres and two days ago my husband came home with six chicks from Rural King. Now I feel like I did when I was pregnant with my first child and tried to learn everything about child rearing before the child was born. I feel a lot better now that I have this forum to rely on.
