    We have 8 chickens that we have had for almost 2 years.
    A friend of mine that has chickens got me interested in raising chickens.

    We love the fresh eggs and our chickens.

    I love to spend time in our backyard and letting our chickens run free.

    I heard about BackYardChickens.com from my friend that raises chickens.

    I'm a software and hardware engineer so whenever I can get away from the PC and spend time outside is always a joy.

    My hobbies are Chickens and Synchronized Christmas Lights. Kind of an odd pair of hobbies.

    I built a backyard hen house so I wanted to show how it was built.


    Thanks
    Guy

    G’Day from down under Guy :frow Welcome!

    I just had visions of christmas lights in the shape of a chicken on the side of a house! :lau

    Great video and awesome finished product! :clap

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)
