Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Raising chickens is a wonderful experience for children. Breeds such as Australorps, Faverolles, Orpingtons, Silkies, Sussex, Cochins, and Brahmas have a well deserved reputation for being calm and gentle; great lap pets and good breeds for children to handle. Of course there can always be an exception with any breed. If high egg production is a priority, Australorps are the best layers on this list. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
