Chickens rock!

Hello from NC. My name is Salim. I’m not totally new to chickens but I’m still figuring things out. I’ve had them twice but have had to restart again due to various issues. Both previous flocks I had were already layers and I think that was where my problems came from. The girls were already so accustomed to free ranging a farm and weren’t happy with the limited space of my yard. This season, I’ve started from scratch. I LOVE LOVE LOVE having a basket of rainbow eggs. My new flock will have a black copper maran, an easter egger, an olive egger, a sapphire gem, and a calico princess. I’m hoping that hand raising them myself will lead to friendlier more docile girls.

My mother got me into chickens. She hasn’t 2 dozen Rhode Island reds that I just fell in love with.

I have 4 children, 2 dogs, and 2 cats.

Glad to be here!
Welcome to Backyard chickens Salim, it's very nice to meet you. When you raise birds from little chicks, they get socialized a lot more than when you buy an older bird. Also when they grow up with your rules - coop and run, etc. they will not expect to be free ranged.
G'Day from down under Salim :frow Welcome!

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.
