    Dancing with Chickens
    Hi All,

    I am an old hippy chick writer. I live in the city but have turned my backyard into a farm where I grow organic food and dance amongst the chickens. I began my farming career several years ago after reading yet another headline telling me that the American diet of processed, sugar laden, chemically-enhanced, genetically-modified food we are eating is making us sick. I went in search of a healthier diet and found a new way of life. As for the chickens, I brought them home for the eggs. Who knew I would fall in love with them?

    I’ve spent a lifetime as a city gal so reinventing myself as a farmer has been a challenge. I am a work in progress and I’ve come here to connect with other chicken people, learn from them and exchange stories.

    Greetings from Kansas, Blogachick, and [​IMG]! It's really great to have you aboard! Lots of BYC members started on a quest similar to yours and that brought them to chickens - and they are happier and healthier for it. A great forum in which to share your poultry and life experiences can be located in this link: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/39/pictures-stories-of-my-chickens
    Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC - and enjoy your flock! [​IMG]

    G’Day from down under blogachick [​IMG] Welcome!

    I love your avatar!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Would love to see your chicken dance- it might catch on here. We have a Bycer "Sourland," who is famous for his "broody" dance. Many believe it makes hens go broody and set on and hatch their eggs.

    Welcome to the Backyard Chickens flock. We can always use more folks with a sense of humor
