Hi Everyone!
My handle is buggal but my name is Lisa. I live north of Dallas, TX. I got my first few chickens a little over a month ago. I started off with 14 girls and 4 boys. Now I have a lot more girls and fewer boys. I think the total is around 39 now. I am starting tonight with the incubator. I have a auto turner so I am hoping that this will be a great success. I have had more joy out of watching my chickens in the last 6 weeks than I have had in a long time. It reminds me of when I was a little girl on my grandmother's farm. I feel a little closer to my relatives that have passed when I am with my chickens. I know that must sound a little strange but it is true.
Thanks for having me and I will try not to ask too much...

Welcome to BYC, Lisa. I enjoyed your post. No, it is not strange to feel closer to someone who has passed while making life memories of your own. It is those connections of shared passions that bind us to those loved ones from our past and you are laying the groundwork for those who share time with you doing those simple, everyday things like caring for your chickens.
