    We've had chickens now for ... sheesh ... 6 years? 2 Wyandotte and 2 Partridge rocks, in our backyard coop. We get 3-4 eggs a day, and we love the personality of chickens - they love the yard, love to peck and scratch, and they follow me around when I'm in the yard. Great experience for our kids as well, they take turns taking care of them, and I love nothing better than feeding them our food scraps - they go crazy for them, and it's a great way to deal with food which would otherwise be wasted.

    Found this forum through a Google Alert and hope to contribute occasionally to the discussions.

    Wanted to say hello, and glad to see such a great community!

    Hey there... welcome to BYC! I'm from PA too - Lower Merion area and I'm waiting, very impatiently, for my first chicks ever! Funny how I never saw a chicken ever around our area and now I see them all the time!

    Kind of like buying a certain brand of car and then suddenly you see all of that brand when you drive around! Somehow once you have chickens you start to meet everyone else around who has them as well! I love it!

    Yup, just what I was thinking.

    Just wondering, do you buy your food etc from Pickering. I haven't found many other places around to buy what I need. That's a good 40 minute ride for me but that may be my only choice.
