    Hi, I just joined a few minutes ago. I recently bought two Buff Orphintons and two Light Brahmas March 3rd. My goal is to harvest my own eggs for my family and friends. I can't wait to learn more from this site especially since I love to learn.

    You picked two very good, docile breeds of chicken. They are also beauties. Know you will enjoy them. [​IMG]

    G’Day from down under MTRChickens [​IMG] Welcome!

    Your little ones are adorable! Best wishes to you and them.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
