    Hi everyone,

    I've been reading this forum for years now, but I FINALLY got my own account :D

    I've had chickens for about 8 years. Currently have a flock of ~250 layers (EE's, Australorps, Andalusians, Wyandottes, Cuckoo Marans, all hatchery quality) and project meat bird crosses. I sell eggs at my local farmer's market.

    My favorite birds are the BBS and Lavender Orps I got from Papa's Poultry a few months ago. Also love my 2 little Mille Fleur booted bantam hens!

    I'm from Central CA, and attended Karen's (sew'n'grow) BYC event back in early summer, it was tons of fun :) so I'm hoping to find some of the other attendees here; you were all great.

    Looking forward to learning more and sharing with people who love chickens just as much as I do!

    Thanks!! I have lots of questions so I'll be on here frequently ;)

    Haha they aren't all laying yet, so only getting about 50 eggs a day from the older girls. It takes longer to pack all those eggs into flats! [​IMG]
