Hey Everyone,

I've been spying on this website for awhile now, and have gotten some very useful information!! I'm Bethany, and I'm fairly new to the chicken life. I start with eight, which was a lot for a new chicken mom, but hey, go big or go home, LOL!! I got started when I fell in love with my cousin's chicks and have to have some of my own. Me and her left on lunch and when I came back to work, I was the proud owner of 2 Easter Eggers, 2 Rhode Island Reds, 4 Orpingtons. And when I say came back to work, they came with me!! I set them up in a rabbit cage, with a heat lamp in the hall way, and we all had a blast that day!! They are about 3-4 months old now.

I then went to "Dog Days" in my area, which is an over sized, extremely country, flea market, with everything from knick knacks to livestock. I thought I was country, but I was prepared for the level of country here. I almost came unglued, when I saw them stuffing live chickens in potato sacks. So I knew I had to rescue something. So I saw this one hen, and by the loss of feathers and the farmers jokes about her being the roosters favorite, I knew she was the one!! She adapted quickly!! And I rescued 3 chicks, but my black Turken was the only one to survive. Those farmers had a kick out of me and my cousin walking away with chickens in a cat carrier, and us calling ourselves "city country".

I've since added 2 Cochins, 2 Delawares, 1 male rescue call duck (in need of a female friend), and 2 ducklings!!
