    I don't own chickens, so I probably don't belong here, but I'm absolutely infatuated with them. since the neighbors disregarded the "no poultry" clause in our deeds and got some hens, I have fallen in love with the little creatures! My DH and I are retired, so when the neighbors go on vacation, we get to take care of "the Henwicks," 2 BO, 2 silkies, 1 JG, 1 WCP, and 6 barnyard mixes. Since we live on a very visible corner lot, I don't see us getting our own flock any time soon. Until then, I'd like to thank all of you here on BYC for being such a caring group, willing to share your knowledge and experience, along with recipes, hugs from strangers, some just plain silliness, and great photographs. I'm on this site several times a day for my daily therapy! Thanks, everyone.

    Welcome! And you most certainly do belong here! We have lots of members who don't own any chickens for one reason or another. I hope you get to have your own flock one day!

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] Everyone's welcome here! You don't have to own chickens, many members here don't. But most of us like them (and others like duck, geese etc) and that's enough. One day you'll have your won flock and then you can share your chicken stories with us.

    Thanks, everyone. We found some meal worms at Lowes (!), and couldn't wait until Christmas, so the Henwicks just had a treat!:D
