    Hello,
    I probably should have signed up a long time ago! We have 14 chickens (6 Barred Rocks, 6 Rhode Island Reds and two Easter Eggers). We got them back in March and have been having fun ever since. I call them our therapy chickens since it is therapeutic for us to watch them roam our backyard. We have had health issues for the past 3 years so it is nice to have them! They started laying eggs about two weeks ago and we are enjoying fresh eggs with nice orange yokes. I never thought I could enjoy having chickens so much! When we have any questions, we come to Backyardchickens.com and find the answers. We are thankful for this website! [​IMG]

    Glad that you joined the flock and that BYC has been helpful to you. My sister lives in Bernalillo, and my niece in Rio Rancho, if I got the spellings right.

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. Easter Eggers are my granddaughter's favorite chickens. She loves the colored eggs. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
