Hello! I've been a lurker for years (super introvert, I am ) and finally decided to join up! We started our flock four years ago and currently have 18 hens and one roo - hoping to have some chicks in a few days, too. We have RRRs, EEs, Leghorns, Australorps, Barred Rocks...I think that's it right now. I found BYC when we got our first chicks - I never needed to ask a question til now because anything I wanted to know was already on here!! Hubs and I have 7 children, 3 grands (so far) and we live on a little one-acre farmette in the middle of a big city. We homeschool and garden, too! Nice to meet you all!!!
