    Hey everyone,

    I'm glad that I finally made it over to this side of the interwebs. I've been meaning to do this for a long time but I am a lifelong procrastinator.

    I have two separate flocks of chickens, the old ladies are a varied lot with Buff Orpingtons being in the majority. The young ladies are divided between Barred Rocks and White Rocks. In addition, I have a flock of Cayuga ducks who also provide entertainment.

    The poultry exist alongside my herd of 16 alpacas and thus life is never, ever, boring.

    I look forward to getting to know you all better. Now if you'll excuse me I look forward to doing a deeper dive into the threads here to glean some wisdom on how I can improve my hatching rates.

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

    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]
