    Greetings!

    I'm excited to be here as there is a wealth of knowledge all over this site. My family is looking to acquire some chicks/eggs in the next month or two and can barely contain our excitement! It's definitely Buff Orps though :)

    Can't wait to get mixed up in this whole mess of raising chickens and meeting you all!

    Thanks Ol Grey!
    Yes I've been reading about all the breeds that I can get my hands on and they seem to be my kind of bird :) I also liked the Brahmas too but don't know about the feathers on the feet??? But it seems like they are sweethearts too!

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

    Best wishes to you and your flock when they arrive.

    I recommend a visit to the Learning Centre; lots of good tips there: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    and some great coop ideas here if you do not already have any: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/2/Coops

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone! I just saw the Spring chick prices for the local Flemmings store! Can't wait to see what I can get my hands on.
