Hi! I'm from Utah. My name is Boots / Bryan (seriously, my friends call me both). I already typed out some of my story on my My Page, but here it is: It all started with a posting to one of my favorite websites, BoingBoing about how much fun backyard chickens can be. I read the article and then decided it would be fun to learn more. I then joined this site, and did a bit of research on the laws in my city. One I was sufficiently indecisive, i waited... and waited. One day, out of the blue, I got a sign. My favorite radio station, which does pop / rock music had an ad for the local Farmer's Association. It said they had baby chickens. I decided to run on down and check it out.... and then left with 6 of them and all the fixins for raising babies. I got 6 Ameraucanas now, I think 2 are roos, and am gonna keep them until it gets to the point where I think they're a nuisance, or they're fighting. I live in Cottonwood Heights, Utah, which does allow chickens. I can get my license once I have the coop inspected. I'm calling the guy tomorrow! Bye!
