I'm a new BYC Member from Tallahassee, Florida and I'm super excited to be part of this forum! I have seen so many wonderful ideas reading your posts here.
Based on BYCs suggestion about how to post as a new member, here is a little info about me:
I am new being a backyard chicken mom; I bought my chickens as chicks and they turned 2 years old as of March 17th. After some friendly advice to "get twice the number of chicks that you want because half will die in the first year" I bought 8 chicks who are all alive and well today ; )
I have: 2 New Hampshire Reds (Cutlet and Dumpling)
2 Australorps (Pepper and Cassie)
2 Gold Laced Wyandottes (Coco and Barbie)
1 Columbian Rock (Marlee)
and 1 Buff Orpington (Buffy)
(Except for Marlee, all of my chickens are named after chicken dishes but I no longer eat chicken and these girls are just pets.)
BackyardChickens.com was recommended to me by a friend who has chickens and I'm so thankful- it is invaluable!
Other than chickens, I enjoy just about any "outdoor sport" and I work in programming and software development.
