Hi everyone, I am new to the flock. My husband and I got 10 Australorp chicks at a nearby feed and seed store last Wednesday afternoon. The owner was there and showed us her flock of Australorps and my husband was sold. I have been researching chickens for a while (found byc on a search engine) because we just moved to an area where having chickens is a good thing and I have wanted fresh eggs for a while. My husband and I have 2 boys (17&11) and 2 inside cats, and 4 large goldfish. Currently I am a stay at home mom and my husband is a plumber. So far we like having chickens. I am amazed how peaceful I feel while interacting with them. I am looking forward to learning from everyone.
