    Hi everyone! I've moved in with my boyfriend's parents for eight weeks while I'm working for them, and they own chickens. Well, they did own eight but now they're down to two. Anyway, I've grown pretty fond of them - Sick Chicken and Rizo - and in my efforts to help Sick Chicken I came across this site. Although they're not actually my chickens, I'm the only crazy one that squats in the coop and talks to them and pets them so I figured since I'm going to be around for the next eight weeks and I know almost nothing about chickens I should join up!

    Hi everybody!

    I know, I've become ridiculously attached to the poor chooks after only a few days, they're really lovely and I love the sounds they make! I don't even know what breed they are but they're so sweet... Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! [​IMG]
