    Hi, I signed up last year and before I was able to get started on my coop my job(s) went crazy. Long story short, I'm leaving the 80 - 100hr week and going back to the 40hr life. Now I have time for hobbies again! I had a lot of experience with poultry production about 18 years ago in my highschool ag classes, but I'm looking at having some laying hens. I'm sure I will have lots of questions.

    With more time, I am sure you will enjoy your flock even more. Plus watching chickens is very calming and therapeutic. Welcome to Backyard chickens.
