    Hi everyone!
    My name is Ken, I'm married, retired, have 3 grown children and a flock of Grand kids.
    I had chickens about 20 years ago and need a hobby now so I've decided to try again.
    I currently have 42 assorted chickens from 17 breeds including Black Copper Marans, RIR, Barred Rocks, Ameracauna, Sex links, Buff Orpingtons and Wyandottes from 2 weeks to two years old. Only 6 of the 42 are laying now.
    I'm not sure how I raised chickens before without the Internet but i didn't realize how much I didn't know. I learned so much from this site, I had to join.
    I'm looking forward to learning more and maybe even helping someone else.
    Thanks.
    Ken

    I just wanted to extend a warm welcome to all of our new BYC members! Scan the site for conversations using the "forum" tab, create your profile in the "my profile" tab, the tab called "learning center" can answer newbie questions, and if you haven't built a coop yet the "coops" tab has a lot of pictures and building plans!

    Welcome!
