    My name is Bri and I am a first time chicken owner. I have a little urban brood of 5 and so far I am looooving it! My husband and I live in the city, but we still want to be self-sufficient so a kitchen garden is going in the front and eggs are going in the back (we are vegetarian.) We have a silver and a buff laced Polish and 3 silkies and we are buds! I sit with them in their coop and they all run to me and pile on my lap. I call it the cuddle puddle [​IMG]. [​IMG]

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    How adorable!! I have a bunch of lap chickens as well. They all fight and argue on who gets to sit closest to mommy. I need a stop watch so that each chicken gets their turn.....NEXT!!! Ha!

    Enjoy your lovely birds and welcome to our flock!

    Welcome to BYC, Bri. Glad you decided to join our flock. Your Polish are beautiful. I used to raise Golden Polish and they were delightful birds; beautiful and friendly. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with the cuddle puddle. :eek:)
