    I've been seriously working towards getting my own backyard flock going for the past 6-7 years. I am so excited to get my first 6 barred Plymouth Rock. I wanted Australorp, but these guys are adorable and still high on my list. My daughter is smitten. When I brought them home, she thanked me every 15 minutes for getting her baby chicks. My grandmother raised all kinds of birds, but this is the first time for me on my own and I have already learned so much from this community that I'm sure that I will enjoy this venture all the more thanks to you all!

    Barred rocks are a very popular breed & rightly so. Hope you will enjoy Backyard chickens as much as we do. [​IMG]

    G’Day from down under mtmama2many [​IMG] Welcome!

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    Best wishes to you and the littlies. Your avatar is adorable!

    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]
