    Hey everyone! My name's Maeve and I'm the proud owner of four two and a half week old chicks. I own a Buff Orphington (Zinnia), a Red Star (Paprika), a Rhode Island Red (Strega Nona), and a Barred Plymouth Rock (Pitty Pat). All four are lovely little hens. I joined mostly to get as much advise as I can in raising my baby girls, and to connect with fellow chicken lovers since everyone at school thinks I'm either insane or epic because of my happy hen house.

    I live in a nice suburban town of Massachusetts and attend the public high school there. I play volleyball and basketball, and am usually overloaded with school work and social drama.

    This looks like a lovely site and I'm sure it will be very helpful.

    Welcome, Maeve! I love Massachusetts - I used to live in Medford and worked in Watertown. I'm in San Diego now, but I still miss the seasons.
    I'm a newbie chicken owner myself and have found tons of great information on this website. It's really great, and the people are kind and informative. I think you'll like it here [​IMG] Oh, and BTW, it's completely epic...and sometimes borders just a little bit on insane [​IMG] And just wait till you get to chicken math!
