Hellllllo! First time chicken owner!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
We decided to keep our own chickens this year and we've incubated some silkie eggs whose due date is tomorrow!
Thought I'd join here because I've used it a lot during the incubation period and it seems like the best place to be!

Hi, and welcome to BYC. I "just got laid"* myself. I plan on getting a few Easter Eggers and hopefully a Marans around the first. The only problem I have seen with BYC so far is it can be real sloooow to respond sometimes  (I'm referring to the software, not the members). 

 

 

 

 

*( :yiipchick "New Egg", "laid", get it? OK, bad. :smack)

An old Production Red, a Black Australorp, 1 Marans, 7 Easter Eggers, 1 (suspected) EE Roo with an attitude,

two dogs...

and some really prolific oak trees!

Good or bad I dunno but the term you used means something very different in the UK - so that was funny :)

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
