I've been lurking here for a few weeks now. I've acquired a flock of my own to have fresh eggs and have been researching things here when I have questions. I'm not emotionally attached to the birds but I take pride in taking care of them. My wife thinks I'm crazy and would probably think I'm even crazier if she knew I made a chicken forum profile. I had chickens growing up but this is the first time I've had a flock that's entirely my responsibility. I love to eat fresh eggs (at least 3 per day) so I've got to keep the hens happy!
