    I have been reading up on this site and learning as much as I could. I finally took the plunge two days ago and my kids and I got some chicken. We got 5 Blackstars because that is how many the city of Tempe allowed we were told. My little girl was so excited. She like to watch over them all the time. I will do my best to take care of them with the information learned from this site. Thanks everyone.

    Ah, true.

    I've been on the old ezboard/yuku one.

    Still, so far it's been nice here.

    The blackstars tend to be a friendly, calm, and a good little layer. I'm sure you will enjoy them.

    Welcome to BYC, Manueld64. This is a great place for learning and to just talk chicken. It is sort of like a family here, with the usual differences of opinions. Some of the debates are very informative, some are just plain fun, sort of silly, you know, and some get downright nasty. Yep, just like a family...

    Welcome, Manueld!

    How nice that your area allows you to keep some chickens! I know that you will find new things to enjoy about them every day, and I hope that you will continue to share with us.

    If you have a question, there's almost always someone able to answer it! [​IMG]
