    Oh no, we went overboard,... maybe. My wife and kids went to a 'swap' last year and came home with 3 White Leghorns and a couple of other 'fancy' types. The Leghorns made it and the others didn't. Another swap later in the year and we got a frizzle Cochin. Come this spring, we went in with a couple of other people on an order. 3 Easter Eggers, 3 light Brahmas, 3 Silver lace Wyandotte, and 3 Buff Polish. A trip to TSC netted 6 Americuana. A 'Peep Show' at another feed & supply store and we have a RIR, a cinnamon queen, a spangled hamburg, and 2 Delaware(white). A chance encounter adds 2 Delaware Blue Hens. Methinks we're in for a long summer. :)

    G’Day from down under ninjafeathers [​IMG] Welcome!

    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.

    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 [​IMG]
