    Greetings all, I have just joined as I am entertaining the idea of keeping a few hens in my backyard for eggs and companionship, but as a beginner have many questions and concerns!

    Raising poultry is fun, interesting and rewarding. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Also, the Search feature is a handy way of finding information...it's located in the upper left, under the logo.

    It's nice to have you here!
