    Hey there BYC members!!

    My name is Lindsay, and I'm new to this chicken thing. My husband (jdprice21 on here) has joined, but now he's got me on here, too! We have a small flock of 5. Cuckoo Marans, Black Australorp, White Leghorn, Ameraucauna, and Speckled Sussex, that live in our backyard.

    They have a coop and they also have a nice "free-range" pen area.

    Our leghorn lays almost every single day (she's sick today, I posted on the EMERGENCY boards if anyone knows anything!)
    We're also getting a brown egg almost every day, but we aren't sure which bird is laying those!

    In case you're wondering about me, I'm a 23 year old author for Harpercollins. I write all day, and have a small farm with lots of animals!

    My husband and I are hooked on chickens! They're so fun.

    If an egg did break inside her that should win her a trip to the vet stat. She can end up with peritonitis
