    Hello! So excited to be starting this part of life, retirement and caring for my favorite animals full-time (I love horses, dogs & chickens). While I have experience with horses & dogs, this will be my first time with my own chickens. My granny raised chickens so I got help out from time to time. I want my grandchildren to learn to care for animals so we bought some land & moved out to the country. I'm sure I will have many questions. Thanks in advance for the help[​IMG]
