    I have been lurking around here for about a year and finally decided to join. I love this site!
    Have been raising chickens since 2009. Have expanded to 4 coops-hubby says he is not building anymore! We have around 60 chickens total. I am now researching ducks (Welsh Harlequins). Hope to raise some of them down the road...
    Looking forward to spending more time here!
    Regards,
    Mari

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined our community.

    What breeds are your 60 chickens? They must keep you pretty busy!

    To learn more about Welsh Harlequin ducks, I suggest posting in the duck section: Ducks
    Also take a look at the Harlequin breed reviews (Welsh Harlequin) and this Harlequin duck thread:Welsh Harlequin

    Welcome to BYC, Mari. Glad you decided to our flock. I've had all of those breeds and hybirds at one time or another over the years and you have some great layers. Black Sex Links are my favorites; hardy and friendly egg laying machines. My Black Sex Links and Red Sex Links (including those under the Isa Brown label) have been my best layers, consistently churning out more than 300 eggs per hen per year, and my Black Sex Links have been especially persistent layers in really cold weather. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
