This is a group for people who keep chickens (or other poultry) or are interested in keeping them. We will cover all aspects of backyard poultry keeping: Free range or enclosed pens, different types of birds, the laws, breeding, eggs and hatching, egg recipes, and the just plain fun of watching them run around. Come and join us and share tips and experiences, meet other poultry enthusiasts, and just hang out with some very nice folks. Southern CT, Westchester and the Tri-state area are all welcomed!...Kids are welcomed too!
