Hello, allow me to introduce you to my flock.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

   I'm Mark and I've joined the fun filled world of raising BYC's. I currently have 3 hens, 1 Black Australorp (Shadow), 1 Rhode Island Red (Lucy) and 1 Barred Rock (Roxy).  I started my flock in early December (it was 60 degrees outside at the time) and never really had any problems (once the pecking order was established.) I bought a coop-kit online and after assembling it, quickly realized that my girls would need more space. The coop itself is nice, but, the run was small and I wanted them to have more room to roam, so I built a 10x11 netted enclosure. I am feeding them all organic, non-gmo feed along with mealworms and they really seem to like it. 2 of my 3 hens are currently laying (started 2 weeks ago) and I'm hoping my Barred Rock will join in on the fun soon. I've already read quite a bit on the forums and I can only say that I wish I would have found this site sooner! The pics are of the current set up and a pic of the eggs and their color difference RR/BA.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

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
