Greetings from Western MD

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello! I'm Liz and I live in Washington County, MD. I've been wanting chickens for YEARS and it's finally happening on Monday :) Everything is all set up and ready to go thanks to all of the great advice here. My must haves are: gold laced wyandottes, buff orpingtons, barred rocks, and rhode island reds. I'm considering golden comets, araucana and spotted sussex but have heard these breeds may not be as beginner friendly - thoughts? Monday can't come soon enough, I'm so excited :jumpy:woot

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

Hi Liz and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us.

 

Maybe read up in the breeds section about the characteristics of different breeds.

 

The Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced chicken keepers - loads of info on anything chicken. http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

 
Joining your state thread  will also put you in contact with other BYC members in your area.
 
 
The members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.
 
All the best

I would encourage you to give the Speckled Sussex a try if you're interested in them. I have 2 in my mixed flock and they are some of the sweetest tempered (and beautiful) girls I have.

 

No matter what breeds you go with, hope you enjoy them!
