I am new to BYC, although I have been looking things up here since early May. I have 2 Australorps, 2 Black Sexlinks, 2 Americaunas, 2 Guinea Fowl, and a Doe Rabbit. Two of my girls started laying day before yesterday. The Americauna was so proud of what she made; she started talking to me and trying to lead me over to the nesting boxes to show me. I have never had chickens before, but I love them; they all have such big personalities and they do such funny things. I wish I could understand what they are saying because, when I am out there, they all come to me and start chattering and they have so much to tell me.
