    Hi everyone,
    I've been reading up on all kinds of chicken-related things on this page ever since I got my first chickens last year and always enjoyed it. Now I've finally gotten around to officially joining :D
    My husband and I have 5 BR hens, a BR rooster and 3 BO hens. One of the latter went broody in September and we now have 6 chicks as well. We also have a flock of Runner ducks and Mallard/Runner crosses.

    Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! What a wonderful mix of birds you have there :D How exciting for you to have had a broody hen! I'm an incubator hatcher so when one of my hens went broody it was super exciting, hope you enjoyed the process too.

    Wishing you the very best of luck for the future and enjoy BYC :frow
