Hey there! I've been lurking since last summer and though I don't have the room for any chooks I admire them a lot and have a ton of fun browsing the forum, so I decided I should join so that I might be able to chat once in a while. From purely an appearance standpoint, White-faced Black Spanish are probably my favourite breed, though the winters here can be so rough that I probably wouldn't be able to ever keep some, let alone them seeming very rare. Otherwise, I love the look of Wyandotte, Orpingtons, and handsome mystery-mutts; I feel like if I could keep birds, I'd be a large-fowl kinda gal, lol! I do have a question though: does the forum usually load slower when you're logged in compared to being logged out? It's feeling really sluggish.
