    Hi I am a new member to BYC. My name is Rose Ann and I live in SW Florida. We got our first Chickens in May 2013 and they started laying in Sept. We have 13 hens and a variety of breeds. They were suppose to give me something to do (I am disabled) but I thought we could sell some of the eggs to pay for the feed. I have a few regulars customers and they have orders waiting. Thanks to all of you that post helpful hints and the "dos & don't" of raising chickens. I have turned to you many times to get answers. I look forward to being a part of the group.[​IMG] Here are a few pictures of our chickens, coop and run. The coop was designed by my husband.


    Until next time.....

    [​IMG] what beautiful, clear photos of your coop etc If you go to "where am I, where are you," in the social forum, you can locate and post on your state thread. Likely you will find other chicken folks in your locale- great way to make friends
