    Hello all! My mom has always wanted to raise her own chicken for the eggs. She is 69 and can't really do much for them, so I'm the backyard chicken farmer in her stead.

    We have 6 ISA Browns who are several months away from laying age. I didn't think I'd like it, but I'm loving seeing these ladies grow!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! Chickens sure do have a way of creeping into your affections! I was just the same and never thought I would enjoy then but how wrong was I. Once I got going there really was no stopping me. Good luck with getting some eggs soon. It sure is great when you find those little treasures in the nest box.

    Wishing you the very best of luck for the future. Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    Hey there @masanders and as a member of BYC I would love to say [​IMG].

    Well that is greeat to hear that your mother is allowing you to take care of her chickens. My flock has a few that are a few months from laying to but it sure is fun to watch them. I like to see them as having kids. It is just like having a baby you have to take care of the and watch them and "tuck them in". I am sure your ISA Browns are very adorable and I would love to see some pics of them. If you do not mind our Family Life forum would be a great place if you do not mind posting pictures there on your free time https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/40/family-life-stories-pictures-updates I hope you are enjoying BYC and if you ever need anything feel free to ask because we are always available to help you!
