    Hi :welcome
    Glad you could join the flock! As Michael said raising chickens is a very worth while experience. They are such endearing creature and the chicken TV is fantastic! Looking after and keeping your flock happy and well cared for gives a real sense of accomplishment especially when you get the fresh eggs at the end of it. Defiantly drop the link Michael has left for you, has some great articles.

    Wishing you the best of luck, enjoy BYC :frow
