Hello BYC! New chick owner in AZ


Mar 18, 2018
Scottsdale, AZ
Just to start - Thanks for this great Community.

I am a first time suburban chicken owner, dipping my toes in with 3 female chicks. One black sexlink, one cuckoo maran and a barred rock.

Came across BYC while doing research and it is an amazing resource.

Prior to adding the chicks my flock consisted of: Husband, Mother, 16 yr old, 3 yr old, four cats and an Australian cattle dog. I must have been looking for something to do with all my spare time....

Hope to meet you all in the forums
