    40 years ago, when I was in high school I hatched a few fertile eggs. I got hooked on chickens. I had to sell them when i went away to college. Now, I have the time and space for chickens again so now I have 15 3 week old pullets to lay eggs. BYC has helped me at every step from planning to predators.

    Awesome, congrats on getting some more birds, it's funny I found this thread I'm in high school now and I'll have to sell mine when I leave for college next year, I'm going to Iowa State for a major in vet sciences, with a minor in zoology and a second minor in spanish. I have 3 RIR and 1 ameraucana hen and 1 ameraucana roo and 1 silver laced wyandotte chick and 1 leghorn chick and 1 bantam, with a bid on a pair of serama within the next week.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad to have you onboard.

    Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread). In fact, the search box should become your best friend [​IMG] Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best
    CT
