    Hi everyone,
    Im so excited to have found this website! My family has been throwing around the idea of keeping a few chickens for a while now and are now considering it seriously. We want to learn as much as possible so that we can take proper care of our feathered friends and be completely ready for them before their arrival! What a great site!

    Thanks!!!!!

    [​IMG] from MN! There is a LOT to learn on this site... I just wish I had found it prior to purchasing my first chicks. I may have had a little more variety!

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! We are allowed up to six hens, which I think is plenty for our family and the size of our yard and the space we have for a coop.

    [​IMG] from northern California! Glad you decided to join us in this fun and interesting hobby. [​IMG] Have fun on the site--there's so much to read and learn and find out about. I've been keeping chickens for more than ten years and I still learn something new every day. [​IMG]
