    I am new to the group as well as being new to raising chickens. My husband and father in-law thought it would be great for us to have chickens. But in the end I'm the one raising them. In which I'm an animal lover, so no problems. I have 4 dogs and would like to eventually get live stock. Small things first and see if I can raise these chickens.

    I look forward to chatting with you

    Isn't that the way things go? Men and kids always want some animal/pet and the woman always get to take care of it.
