Calling all chicken lovers! Weather you have backyard chickens, love farm fresh eggs, or want to know more about keeping chickens this is the group for you. I started this group to share my knowledge and experience with chickens and to network with other chicken lovers. I'd like to get together with other "chicken folks" to share ideas and talk chickens. I'd like to schedule meet ups once or twice a month and maybe set up coop tours or other "field trip" gatherings.
