    First-time keeper and month-long stalker of BYC! I'm glad to have joined so that I can ultimately get opinions on my feather babies, but I'm super excited to make some friends in the BYC community! I hope to get along swimmingly with keeping and even better with you guys!

    Thank you kindly! I really look forward to all of this!
    About my chickies, I'm pretty sure that the three we have are a White Leghorn, Barred Rock and I think we have a Welsummer. [​IMG]

    But I'll post inquiries about them later :)

    I'm new too and welcome. Everyone has been so friendly here. I think I've found my extended chicken family and hope you will too.
