“ Since joining this group my wife and I have gathered a lot of useful information about keeping chickens in our backyard.. We also met Maggie, another group memeber, who is currently showing us the ropes on how to keep chickens in our back yard "Maggie Rocks". We currenly have five black sex links hens which had been hatched by Maggie and these girls are doing great at four week old now. We just love them...I am currently building my coop and getting things ready for these girls to go out side. If it was'nt for this Meetup group, I would not have been able to meet such wonderful chicken knowlegable people, and also would not had been able to gather my flock. WE got it all in one place....Thanks to the Organizers of this group for establishing this forum you guys truly ROCK!!!! ”
