    Hey there ... My name is Janice and I just joined the group today and am very keen to learn as much as possible. I live on 3/4 acre in suburban Atlanta, love to garden, and am seriously considering getting a small flock of chickens in the new year. I am married with four small children and they are very excited to raise hens and collect eggs.
    I will be asking lots of questions as we start to get our yard ready for hens ... I have a local friend who has six hens and has offered her small coop to get us started. She has been very helpful with all my beginner questions and recommended that I come here to get more help and support.
    I look forward to getting involved with the group and to learning a lot about how to raise chickens

    [​IMG] Beware of friends bearing chickens and coops. They are merely trying to infect you with chicken addiction - so you will not be shocked when they keep adding to their flock because you will be doing the same. Ha ha[​IMG] We are all enablers here. Resistance is futile. Just think you are a BYCER now, you will never run out of people that talk chicken - unlike family members than may shun you as being "bird brained."
