Newbie Introduction

Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by 4hooves&featheredfriends, Jan 5, 2009.

  1. Greetings to you all! I am a newbie to the fascination with feathers! My first passion, after my husband of 14 yrs and family are my horses and my life as a riding instructor.

    Recently, I have been totally obsessed with chickens, as a result of caring for my neighbors flock of 8. Within the past 3 weeks, I have visited 50 sites about chickens and raising chickens; became a member of discussion boards and can't stop checking for new posts.

    Although I will not be able to get them for several weeks I have decided upon 3 of each - Barred Rocks, Buff Orps, Speckled Sussex, Golden laced wyandottes, SC light brown Leghorns and Black Australorps. Picked them based upon personality, non-broodiness, egg production and the fact that they will do OK in cold weather.

    My family has had birds before but not for about 5 yrs, so I thought I would start it up again. Looking forward to learning so much about my chicks - even though you can never learn enough about horses.

    Here is my little video - horses no chickens yet;

    Thanks for letting me share!
