I am a chicken mama to 11 Backyard Chickens. We had a group of 5 that we raised from chicks, everything was going great and then added 3 babies this past spring and it's been a wild ride since then. Raccoon attacks, more babies, mycoplasm, chicken shots, first molt and now lice. I've been reading BYC for over a year and have learned so much. I finally decided to join and might even post here or there. I feel like I've learned more about chickens in the last year than I thought I could and now I've learned there's lots more to learn.
