    I was looking for a great forum to research answers to nagging questions I had accumulated about my chickens. I was not satisfied by reading the general information books I was picking up at the local feed store. Love google, landed on this site and here I am with this introduction. I was quickly informed about the mysterious lump/tumor I discovered on nearly all my pullets, now 5 months old. When can I call them hens, how old must they be to graduate from pullet status. LOL These little fluff balls are all consuming of my love and affection. My son's 15 and 21 are complaining that I must get out of the shabby chic chicken coop and spend some time with my true offspring.

    Looking forward to sharing discovery and finding answers to my questions along this journey.

    P.S. I'm currently reading Farm City, Novella Carpenter and am enjoying her take on also being captivated by these fluffy personalities.

    Sincerely, [​IMG]
