    Hi all,

    We just bought our first chickens today and are very excited about our new venture. We've been reading the posts and they're very informative. Look forward to chatting with you all soon.

    Regards
    Adam & Erica

    I still only have my rooster... Poor lonely boy, the ladies were due two weeks ago but something bad must have happened because now the Mill says they will be available in May.....

    How funny, T.J. my husband reacts the same way. I can't tell you how he cracked up when he discovered I had found a chicken forum. [​IMG] his words, "what is there to know about chickens?" Boy, did he get an earful. [​IMG] Let's just say I have been educating him with everything I am learning from this wonderful site.
