    Hi all, I am Susan from Michigan and I'm so happy to be here. I became a first time chicken mama in April, 9 EEs and 3 BRs. Every time I searched the internet for chicken info I found all the best stuff at BYC! I finally decided I should probably join. I never thought I would say this but I love my chickens! Three years ago we bought a house that already had chicken coops and runs. It was clear that somebody had spent a lot of time and money setting it all up and we felt a little guilty for not using it. Last winter we finally decided we would give it a try. We decided to start out with layers and then maybe add broilers if it went well. Things have gone very well so far though I did figure out that I love my chickens too much to eat them, so we will stick with just the layers. I am now addicted and have already ordered my chicks for this spring and have a wish list for future years. Thank you to everyone who has contributed info to the site, it has made my introduction to chicken keeping so much easier and more enjoyable!

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan :D

    I used to live in Fowlerville, beautiful area. Hope you stop by the Michigan thread and say Hi, there are a few folks in Howell that are on often. Look in the Where am I - where are you section of the Forum.
