Hi there! My name is Sam and I am VERY new to chickens! I got the bug when I had seen that my neighbors were raising chickens and the eggs were wonderful! I have the perfect place on my property to put a decent sized coop and room for the ladies to run around so, why not? I’m newly retired and have more time to garden and it would be wonderful to add chickens to our family. I have been doing a LOT of research on all things chicken and all sites end up on “BackYard Chickens”! The site is teaming with sage ideas and wonderful ideas so I’m looking forward to being a member!
