    Hi ya...after years of wanting chicken I'm going to be blessed w/ 18 of them all at once and within the next few weeks. I'm excited and apprehensive all at once. The chickens are coming w/ my new home/property; also have one horse and hope to get him a friend. Can't wait to learn and grow as my homestead comes together.
