    My family and I just moved out to a small farm. Our first goal after moving in, was to bring in chickens. We ended up with 10 Cornish Cross, 25 Rhode Island Reds, 5 Golden Comets, and 8 random ones the kids picked out that I've about determined include 1 Brown Leghorn, 2 Austra Whites, 1 Australorp, 1 Barred Rock, 1 Buff Orpington, and 2 Wyandottes. My goal is to raise them for a mixture of eggs and meat in as much a natural life as I can. We are excited to be getting started!

    G’Day from down under 1livelybunch [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you, your family and the flock 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]
