Hi All! My name is Molly and I'm new at raising chickens. I have 3 four week old chicks right now--1 Australorp, 1 Speckled Sussex and 1 Silver Laced Wyandotte. I also have 1 mystery chick that is about a week old--either Cornish X or White Rock, I think. Like any nervous mother, I did a bunch of research and I kept arriving on BackYardChickens forums and finding good information. So I joined. I also knit, and read a bunch (I teach high school English and Theatre). I have been married for 12 years. I have 3 dogs and 4 cats. We just moved to the country where we have 6 acres of woods. We're putting in a garden as we speak. We can't wait for the summer! And I can't get this text to not be bold, so sorry about that. I'm not yelling.
