Hello everyone. I found myself here @ BYC a week ago or so. Now, I have been toying with the idea of getting some chickens for a while, oonly thing stopping was convincing the boss that she should let me... Well, I was working on fixing my neighbors shed, opened up my work trailer doors and left them open for a bit. I return an hour or so later to fetch a tool, and as soon as I touch the door this chicken freaks out flappin and clucking. Scared the livin daylights outta me. No one near me has chickens. Put up a found chicken sign no one claimed it. it seemed to not have a home as it wandered back and forth between the neighbors house and mine for 2-3 days. I came here, read up, and now I have a small tractor and 2 other laying hens I bought from a farm. **** things are kind of addicting. I bought 2 Americana's, and I haven't nailed down exactly what kind the homeless(formerly) one is, feather outside feet, pea comb, gray blue color. I'll get a pic up eventually. Lookin forward to the sharing of knowledge!
