    Hello BYC!
    My name's Brittany, residing in Kentucky with my 18 month old daughter, and husband. We are a military reserve family who just moved into a house in the country on an acre. We've always wanted chickens and ducks and we finally are able to have them! Woohoo! I haven't ordered any yet as Im still doing a lot of research before I dive in but I am so looking forward to learning from all of you!!

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

    As you have already received some links to great starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    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]
