    I just wanted to let you know what a great forum you have here at BYC. I was raised on a farm and we always had hens and chicks around. Well, after many years and being influenced by all your stories, I have placed my order with McMurray and expect to receive 32 babies next week. I ordered 8 Light Brahmas, 8 Buff Orpingtons, 8 Black Australorps and 8 Silver-Laced Wyandottes.

    Andy, way to go on the Light Brahmas. You won't be disapointed. They will become your best friends.

    Mount Airy, is a beautiful place, I visited there last year. It will be very nice for you, I am thinking there must be lots of chicken folks around. It is a perfect spot with lots of country nearby.

    Welcome and enjoy you birds, of course we expect to see photos of the babies. [​IMG]

    I also agree with the Brahmas...I miss mine badly...
    They're heavy breeds, so they may not lay until they're 6 months old...
    Big, is that a Brahma as your avatar? [​IMG]
    Thanks for the vote of confidence for us all...you have to show us the babies when you get them settled.
