    Good morning all!

    Last night, my first Lavender Orpington chick hatched RIGHT before my kids had to go to bed! Talk about perfect timing! I have had chickens for a few years now but this is my first go at hatching eggs, so it's very exciting! Does it ever get old? I still get excited watching calves and goals drop after seeing it for years! Ahhhhh. Just a happy chicken mama right now!

    Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us, and what great timing for your kids! Nope, I don't think hatching ever becomes a run-of-the-mill thing - certainly not for me!

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area -

    All the best

    Congratulations on your first hatch. Cant wait to see pictures of the little ones. I bet the kids had a hard time going to bed with all the excitement of the chicks hatching.

    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]
