    Hello everyone. I've had backyard chickens for a couple of years now, and have been lurking on this site nearly that long. Currently I have a very small flock of four girls, two Wellsomers and and two Black Javas. I've had other breeds including Barnvelders, Polish, and BRs, but had some predator issues which have now been addressed (although I know predators are a constant threat). Next week I anticipate a delivery from a hatchery, two BRs, two Golden Laced Wyandottes, and two little golden Sebright chicks. I do this for enjoyment, entertainment, and relaxation. And, of course, fresh eggs. [​IMG]

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

    Sorry to hear about your losses.

    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]
