    I just joined the website. I've raised chickens since I was 6 years old. I had over 200 growing up. I have decided to get back into raising chickens as pets. I currently have 20 chickens, 16 of which are chicks I recently got. My other are full grown hens I raised from chicks. I thought it would be nice to know other chicken owners In a community!

    Greetings and welcome to BYC! So glad you joined us. 200 birds is a lot of birds! What you have now sounds much more reasonable ;) There's a wealth of info, knowledge and experience shared in the multitude of threads. Browse around and see what interesting stuff you can find. By all means post away when the desire strikes you, especially if you have questions (provide as much detail/info as possible and pictures truly help)... With all the great folks here, generally someone will respond in no time at all. Please make yourself at home!

    Oh, if you haven't done so already, PLEASE put at least your general location in your profile. It could be very important if/when you ask for or offer help or advice. You know, climate issues and such. Old folks like me :old will never remember & look there first. To add it, mouse hover over Account top right and a drop down will appear. Click on Personal Details and scan down. You'll see the spot for Location. Then go to the bottom and save changes. Thanks! Hope you enjoy the site!
