    Hello Everyone,

    Just found BYC via Google and happy to be here. I'm in Danbury CT and hoping to have my own backyard chickens as I look for some new hobbies to get me out and active from my daily grind of sitting in front of a computer 8-10 hours a day. One of my other hobbies I'm starting this Spring is keeping bees and hope the package arrives soon. I also enjoy gardening and fishing.

    It's been over 30 years since I've had chickens, but I grew up with them and even had a pet hen that used to sit on my shoulder as a kid. I miss the chickens and hope to be able to get back to raising a few.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    it must be really exciting to get back into chickens from such a long hiatus. i look forward to keeping bees some day, too - good luck and i hope your new outside adventures are as freeing from the computer as you hope them to be!
