    My name is Jess and I live in Central Oklahoma. I got my first order of chicks in February and they have recently started laying. I am very excited and somewhat surprised at how much I enjoy my chickens.

    I have always loved fresh eggs and have generally purchased them from various places but strangly have always been very afraid of birds.....strange, I know, but it does back to a bad experience with sea gulls as a child.

    My new year's resolution: face a fear. I figured I'd start with chickens and have the added benefit of my own fresh eggs.

    Turns out, I love chickens!

    aw, don't be afraid of chickens! roosters, yes...

    i was surprised by how much i missed having chickens, so i can understand your excitement. my mom laughs at me when she looks at my updates on my byc website and says my grandfather and great aunt would be really proud that i enjoy my chickens and my garden so much.
