Hi my name is Rhonda. My son (age 17) just talked me into buying 2 baby chickens. I've had various parrots all my life and am familiar with bird care, just have not had chickens. He's thrilled to pieces with his new babies! I ordered the 2 books on this site, Raising Chickens for Dummies and Building Chicken Coops for Dummies.... hope this helps! Glad to be here and looking forward to meeting some of you!
