    Hello from Ariel Washington! My fiance and I purchased our first home (finally) way out of town with some acreage. Well what happens when you move from a condo in the city to a house with room to roam...our kids wanted "animals" haha so we started with chicks and they seem to be doing well. I have to admit I was hesitant about getting the birds and now I cant imagine my yard without them. They have more personality than I ever realized!

    I am now convinced that my flock is family and I talk to them the same way I talk to our dogs, kids, etc.

    I have learned a lot from searching questions and finding the answer on this site, figured it was time to join.

    Now onto finding a forum for my questions!

    Excited to meet and learn
