    I have a flock of seven (6 16-week-olds and 1 19-week-old):
    • 1 Black Copper Maran rooster
    • 2 BCM hens
    • 3 Welsummer hens
    • 1 Blue Orpington hen

    I obtained a great amount of information from this site during a very tough time - my young flock had Infectious Bronchitis (it was finally diagnosed through bloodwork after seven weeks of not knowing what was up) and is now on the way to recovery (after sadly having lost two of nine), so now that I have come up for air, I thought I would join up so I could formally thank you all for contributing your experiences. In return I hope to be able to pay the community back with my own observations as I gain experience myself, I've been a more or less full-time chicken nurse for the past two months [​IMG]. Looking forward to interacting with you on the forums! [​IMG]
