    My husband and I have had a small mixed flock of about 20 for 2 years now and have really enjoyed them. We got an incubator and are now the proud parents of 33 new babies! With all this excitement we realized we are chicken crazy. Our next project will be breeding and showing chickens with our children. [​IMG][/IMG]

    G’Day from down under beasknees [​IMG] Welcome & Congratulations!

    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 more 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]
