    I'm thrilled to be part of this community and have already found so much helpful info! I got my first chicks today from the local Farmers' Association. I got Ameraucanas (possible actually EE's) I only have room for two, but am purchasing for my parents as well and will get more from different breeds available next week. I'm very excited. I was so nervous driving home and check on them so often. Thank you everyone for making this community so I'm able to live my dream of having chickens![​IMG]

    Absolutely adorable. Of course, I haven't seen an ugly chick yet... ever. [​IMG]

    I'm so very glad you joined BYC and have entered the surprisingly rewarding world of keeping chickens. You think you love them now? Wait until you learn their individual personalities!!
