    Hi, I'm Joy. I've been a chicken herder before, raising a flock of 28 Jersey Giant hens and their overlord, Marvin lol. We moved to Texas and I went chicken crazy. I bought 4 Lavender Orpingtons, three of which died in the first two days. My remaining girl is my personal favorite (please don't tell my other girls!) I have five Silver Laced Wyandotte pullets, two Polands, hen and rooster, and what I was told were Light Brahmas,5 in number. However, although they have 5 toes and leg feathers, they also have the puffy cheek feathers I'm used to seeing on Aracaunas. Do I have crossbreeds? I would appreciate any input. Thanks

    Nice to meet you Joy. Glad you joined the BYC flock. Would have to see photos to try and determine what breed? You can also post photos at "what breed or gender is this," and get more opinions.

    I took a bunch of photos yesterday, but I am not very familiar with texting and posting. It took me two days to figure out how to join BYC lol. I am trying to learn how to do this. Soon as I figure it all out, I'll probably send more pics than anyone wants to see. Thanks for letting me know what link to go to.

    Thank you. I have been using BYC for info for a long time, but I lived in an area of Oklahoma that had no cell reception, so when I tried to join, it would always drop me or buffer for hours. I had to go ten miles to town to be able to use my phone! I have always enjoyed reading all the messages

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

    Lots of friendly and very helpful folks on BYC so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures about our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Can any one tell me how to get to the area where you can post pictures for What Breed? I don't know what a URL is and that't what it asks me for. Not at all tech savvy. I feel like an idiot because it took me all afternoon just to find my posts again. So if you know, could you please send me very specific details on how to post pictures? I don't even know what a 'thread' is. At least I can send a text, my hubby only knows how to answer his phone and hang up lol.

    Are you using a computer or mobile device?

    I have only used a computer to access the site so not sure how it works on a mobile but to add pictures:

    Once you have your comment box open; select the ‘Insert Image’ option:
    [​IMG]

    Then select ‘Upload Files’:
    [​IMG]

    Browse to where your images are located on your computer, select the images you want to include and then select ‘Open’:
    [​IMG]

    Next you will be prompted to pick a size. Select the size you want and then select Submit:

    [​IMG]

    If the size you pick is too big or small you can delete them from the comments and try again.

    You can also repost images using the ‘My Recent Photos’ option.


    Hope that helps [​IMG]
