Thought it would be good to have a place for us to share pics about our little side of the mountain. I hope we can have a good time, make friends and just chatter on about life in East TN. I will start by saying I want this to be a place where everyone is free to express their opinions & possibly learn from one another. We may not all agree but I think we can agree to keep it light. I also think emergencies and health issues would best be suited for the Emergency and Disease thread. I will start this off by introducing myself. I am a wife/mother and we share our home with many types of animals. We have dogs, cats, fish and of course, chickens. I have my chickens as pets and do not have any intentions of breeding, showing or selling. I am currently trying to get a nice backyard flock of bbs LF Orpingtons and also have a small flock of 10-12: EEs and BCM (I think they are mixes). I think I am going to try to incubate some eggs this spring to help with my Orps but if I get a broody she will most definitely get the job! So how about pulling up a chair and sitting a spell?
