    i have been using the BYC page for some time just never got the time to join up. i got my chickens back in may at a garlic festival here in Sicily being that i do not speak Italian it is hard to ask around about chickens lol. well after alot of research i built a coop, food water dish and a run. moved the chickens out and even found a local ag store [​IMG]. when i bought the chicks they were about 2 weeks old so now they are around 3 months and looking good. i think what i have is 2 New Hampshire reds and Sicilian buttercup mix due to all of them having pea combs. of course me being new to this chicken thing they could be too young to have big combs. Its funny because i was born and raised in Montana but i was kind of a city boy (billings). but i will get more photos up later nice to meet all of you
