    Hello from Cary, NC! I'm brand new to chickens and don't even have a coop. I'm still in the planning stage and hoping to get some chicks this fall. I'm partial to Buff Orpingtons, Amercaunas and any clean legged breeds. The chickens will be pets first and with the eggs as a bonus.

    Super excited to have found this site and learn from everyone's knowledge!!

    Welcome, I absolutely adore buff Orpingtons. It's great you are planning before you get your chickens. This site has lots of great information and folks who like answering questions.

    I spent a lot of time researching on this site before I got my chickens, and I am glad I did. Also, I can personally recommend Ameraucanas :) :)

    @Jessie22 I keep telling my husband we need to go out your way for ice cream at Maple View Farm.

    What kinds of animals do you rehabilitate?

    I rehabilitate migratory birds (no hawks or owls) of all types. Also squirrels but none this year. I am resting because of hatching guineas and Bantam Bearded White Silkies. I don't care for Mable View Farm ice cream. It just doesn't taste right to me. I would rather go to Dairy Queen, its tastes better to me. Check it out on line and see what it says. My husband loved it.

    I have just been informed by Smith Town & Country Feed that they will no longer be selling Reedy Fork products. Nice of them to tell me after I've had products on order for the last 6 weeks.:mad:

    I feed my girls who just started to lay 100% organic. non GMO Soy free feed from Reedy Fork. Are there any of you in my area that also feed Reedy Fork products. Thank you for your reply.
