I guess it's mine turn....I've introduced myself on several of the new member forums but after seeing several today, I guess it's my turn to post one. I absolutely love this site so thanks to every member who has posted a forum or reply on a forum I have learned so much, and in some cases......... what was the heck was that???? We just finished up our coop this past weekend when we got our chickens. We got 2 production red hens, we named them Lucy & Betsy and have already gotten 3 eggs (even though one was a soft shell, thank goodness I had learned on here what one of those was, that was the weirdest thing) from them , and we have 7 RIR chicks that for right now (until they get more distinguishing marks) we have named them chicken nuggets 1-7 We gave the chicks crickets last night OMG that was hilarious We absolutely love having them. It is relaxing and hysterical to watch them. Right now we are doing ok. The few questions I had have already been answered by other forums so thank you to everyone for those There is so much information & wisdom here, I defintely reccommend and have told other people about this site. Just wanted to introduce myself, say hi and thanks P.S. because i am a newbie......is there a link or forum somewhere that has what all the "shortcuts" mean??
