Hello to everyone & a happy first day of spring! I'm super excited to have found this site! I'm expecting 8 new baby pullets on Wednesday! I was raised on a farm most of my life (cows, sheep, horses, dogs, cats) but never had chickens. I've been around chickens a little bit in the last few years but still pretty new to me so I'm excited to be able to ask questions on the forum here when I want or need to. I'm grateful for all the company and any help I may get!! I ordered a mixed group of chicks from one of our local feed stores; 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes, 2 Blue Laced Wyandottes, 2 Americanas, & 2 Black Australorps. I'm wanting these ladies for eggs...we eat a lot of eggs! Good luck and best wishes to all my fellow newcomers, experienced chicken keepers & everyone in between!

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
