    My name is Michelle Kirkham, I'm 39 and I live in Penhook, Va. I do not have any chickens yet but am very intrigued with the prospect. I joined so I could learn more about these beautiful breeds. I want to do my homework before I get any so I know what to expect, so any advice would be much appreciated and I will be peeking at many of the post on here. So glad you have this forum!

    Hello and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Having chickens has been a wonderful experience for me. We bought our chicks before we even started our coop and run. I love raising them from little chicks. I'm about to recieve my first egg soon, as my oldest 3 have reached 5 months of age. I'm very happy with my mixed flock of 8. [​IMG]. Good luck.

    Welcome to BYC Michelle, so glad you joined. I commend you for doing your "homework" first,.. your flock will benefit from it greatly and you will have a more enjoyable experiance with your flock if you are well prepared. You sure couldn't have chosen a better site than BYC for learning and sharing. I look forward to seeing pics of you chicks when you get them!
