    I have learned alot on this site and have been a visitor for weeks and finally joined. I have been wanting to raise some chickens for years but didn't seem to have the time. I got my first egg on Dec. 27th then one on the 29th. My wife told me I was like a kid on Christmas morning. My granddaugther who is 3 and myself works together and she gets as excited as I do. We have 2 BO hens, 6 BR pullets, 2BR roos, 1 RIR roo, 2? Pullets, and 1 BB Red Ban.

    Glad to have you as a member! [​IMG]

    What was really great was Tuesday morning when she came into the living room and asked me if she could eat the little egg. I told her sure. I asked her how was it? She said it was the best egg she ever ate.
