    Spanking new user from the hills of WV! I'm a stay at home mom to 2 tiny people, 4 horses, 2 dogs and 4 cats (anyone want a kitten?). Hubby gets to work hard for the dollar, mostly so I can spend it!
    Chicks are en route as I type:
    2 Australorps, 2 speckled Sussex, 2 random brown egg layers, a buckeye and 2 blue laced red Wyandottes...also have lavender orp eggs under a broody at my mom's.
    We have all together about 100 acres split between two farms that are about 6 miles apart. We live on one and play at the other .
    Hope to meet some new folks, learn some new things and get down in the nitty gritty of backyard chickens!

    :welcome so glad you have joined us.

    My you already have your hands quite full.
    I would take a kitten but my house cat would be way too jealous :)

    Good luck with your new flock.

    Thanks for the welcome! I will most definitely post pics of the little gals when they get here. Really excited about the BLRW bc they are actually subs for the Barnevelders I ordered that unfortunately had a bad hatch. This will be our second round of babies this year since I brooded 24 for my mom a few months ago. Needless to say, my kids are more than excited for "beeby chicks"

    It definitely shouldn't hurt! The gang I raised for her just got integrated to her flock in the last week or so and everyone is doing great...makes me a proud "foster" mama :)

    They got here yesterday afternoon! Everyone is eating, drinking and pooping. Time to just sit and stare :)
    Can't get a picture to post, maybe I haven't been active enough yet?
