    I have had chickens for 5 years and I have learned much about the care of them. I have even hatched a couple of my own by hand and no incubator. Currently I have 11 adult hens and 4 baby chicks. I have a couple Buff mix, Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rocks, Dominiques, Austrolorpes and a Sexlink. I found Backyard Chickens online years ago and it helped me tremendously in raising my hens. I am also obsessed with flowers so sometimes my free range chickens and plants don't mix... :( . I am retired so chickens and flowers are my joy and sometimes heartbreak.

    Hi Judy! In addition to all the chicken chatter, there are a lot of gardeners here on BYC. You can find some good conversations about the topic here:

    G'Day from down under Judy :frow Welcome!

    I am pleased you delurked and 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.

    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 ;)

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

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

    Welcome Judy. Could you have your flowers behind some light mesh fencing to keep the chickens out?
