I knew nothing about chickens. Never owned one or had the pleasure of meeting one. Then... There I was, just innocently surfin the net. Stumbled upon BYC . Couldn't tear myself away.... for weeks . Then...suddenly, I ordered 25 day olds due to arrive June 29, 09. NOW... I actually have a "reason" to be spending every spare minute of my LIFE here!!! Plan to start the coop this month, and will post lots of pictures and hope to get lots of input and advice from everyone. I really like all you folks and I'm really glad to be here! Chicken people ROCK!
