Not just a newbie...a N-E-W-B-I-E!! As in the first time I have ever been this close to chickens EVER!!! My hubs has decided he wants fresh eggs we now have a chicken house with enclosed pen and three chickens. Some friends have been kind enough to share a new brood with us...however, I have already heard a crow out of one and he refuses to step up and show himself to me.
Anyway, I thought I would join BYC as a way to educate myself a bit and learn some of the lingo. At this stage in my learning all I know is I have three chickens that should start laying in the next couple months. LOLOL...here's hoping I get the hang of all this!
Fortunately, hubs is a well-raised country boy and has experience in all this. Here's a pic of the "girls" A-HEM...my niece has named them (from top to bottom) Ethel, Bernice, & Maxine. I'm just about convinced that Ethel and Bernice are boys.
I sure hope y'all have a lot of patience with super newbies...I'm actually enjoying just watching them wander in their new home...they are a bit relaxing to watch. : )
