    hi everyone,

    I'm a new member and new chicken owner. I've waited to get my own chickens for about 4 years and I'm so excited to have them now. I just got 3 Barred Rock and 4 black Sex Links just under 2 weeks old. I want the healthiest and happiest chickens I could possibly have.

    I've been putting them on my lap one at a time while I work on my computer. They're so cute and I'm sure most of you have felt that way when you first started.

    Thanks for letting me introduce myself and I'm looking forward to getting to know you as well.

    Lynn

    Congratulations on getting your flock! You'll be getting plenty of eggs once they get a bit older.

    Glad you're having fun with them. I love sitting with my big girls outside and watching "chicken tv".

    Thanks for joining us, it's nice to have you here!
