    Hello BYC Community,

    We are finally bringing some chickens home this weekend! It's been a long time coming as I've been longing to keep a flock for about 4 years now.

    We now have the ability and we are jumping in with a sweet roo who needs a home, along with 2 hens and 2 pullets graciously gifted to us by our neighbors.

    Grateful for BYC!

    Christina
