so its my 2000 post. i have enjoyed this byc very much!!!!! eas i look back at when i first started out with chickens, i used this website and coops for inspiration. i have met wonderful people on here. i even bought our sheltie from another byc'er and traveled from ct. - virginia to meet her. I have never done this before.. a total stranger!! i love our little sheltlie! thank you all for many tips given to me on my chickens too!! my husband says this forum/website is very addicting. but since i dont do facebook all that much. this is a healthy site! who else would understand my chicken fettish! so thanks everyone!!!
