New to chickens again after almost 30 years. I have a small flock of 9 hatchery bantam cochins, 8 pullets and 1 roo. They are assorted colors and 8 months old, so I'm waiting for my 1st egg. I found BYC while placing the order for my chicks on-line back in June. My chickies and BYC now occupy ALL my free time Thank goodness for all the friendly, knowledgeable people here that make chicken keeping easy and fun.
