    Hi BYC!
    I've grown up with chickens and had them for about 20 years, but have only recently moved from a rural area to semi-urban, and it's been a big change. I used to name all the hens after disney princesses, but now mostly wait and get a feel for their personalities, so I like to imagine I've grown up a little.
    I have 9 chickens right now, mostly rescues. A couple of Isa Browns, a Barnevelder, a Dorking, a couple of Wyandottes, a Light Sussex and an Australorp.
    I've only recently had the time and space to really get into raising chickens, but I have always loved animals and chickens are right up the top of my list now. I like to garden with the chickens and just love to watch them enjoying any new thing they find.
    I am pretty crazy about animals, but also quite ignorant about looking after them, mostly because most of my animals have been very healthy. I'm a bit terrified of causing them distress.
    I have two dogs and three cats, and I'm fairly sure every single one of the animals believes they run the house.
    I haven't known about BYC until I searched for some help with a problem one of my roosters has, and I joined lickity-split, as soon as I got a break from work.
    I hope eventually I can help people by sharing some of my experiences.
    Nice to be here.

    Hello and welcome to BYC - it’s great that you have joined us. Please make yourself at home. Just my opinion, but I like to think that growing up is over-rated :D

    This is a useful link of “How to” BYC guides to take a look at announcements-feedback-issues-guides.3. I’d suggest including your location using the guide in the link. You can use this link to contact members in your area - Find your State's thread.

    Best wishes
