I'm a newbie!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi y'all! I'm a newbie [within the last year] at having a chicken family! I have 17 in my flock.... 2 three year old bantams, one being a Golden Seabright and the other a BB Old English (so I believe). Then there are 2 RIRs, 2 Barred Rocks, 2 (what I think are) Black Marans, a Buff Orp, a White one (?) Unknown - lays cream to light brown eggs, not white , a Black & white one (?) Unknown - don't know what color eggs (she was almost all black as a chick). Those 9 were given to me and raised from chicks. I have acquired a white Silkie banty, a white ? (Speckled) banty, 2 Silver Seabright banties. There are 2 banty roos in my flock, one being a Silver Seabright and the other a brown Silkie. I'm looking forward to learning more thru BYC!

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-
