    I heard about this site on NPR a while ago, and I knew I had to get some chickens... We just bought our first house in December, and I already have three little chicks! (We also have two old lady dogs from the SPCA, and a rescue cat ... and a soon to be very large garden.) They are going on three weeks old now, and I am really loving being a chicken momma. Two are Delaware, and one is Ameraucana.

    Reading this site has really helped me get started, find tons of information and encouragement ... so I wanted to join in on the fun ... and say thanks! Here is a pic of one of the babies:
