    Just wanted to say hello.
    I am new when it comes to raising chickens,but I am already addicted. I still have a lot to learn and I am glad I found byc to help me. I have raised some hins from a day old to about 5 months now and just got 16 more a month ago,so I now have 25 all together.
    I am married, a mother of four, I have three dogs, a cat, and soon a pair of peacocks. We live on a small pease of land,but it is perfect for us. We plan on getting a pig, some goats and some sheep with in the next year. So we basically are city raised people, now trying to raise our kids differently.
    Not sure what else I should say.
    ok, well bye for now

    Hello and welcome to BYC!
    We have a small farm too, 68 chickens (at the moment!) and 6 pigs. Lots of fresh eggs and veggies, homegrown meat... great life!

    [​IMG] from the Finger Lakes of New York! Sounds like great plans. As you can see from my signature, we have quite a variety already. Welcome to the fun!
