    Hi everyone!
    My name is Racheal and I’ve been lurking as a guest for quite a few months. I have 4 children 19, (almost)18, 8 & 7, 5 dogs, 1 cat and am currently a new mother hen to 8 Buff Orpington chicks who are “1-2 weeks old.” We live in a rural area of east central Missouri.
    I love animals (obviously), writing, reading, hot working glass and learning new things. I guess that’s a good thing because I’m going to have to learn how to build a coop
    I look forward to meeting ya’ll.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens Racheal, it's nice to meet you. Good ratio of house pets 5 dogs to 1 cat, sounds close to perfect. Is the St.Barnard one of your dogs?

    Hi! Thank you for the welcome. I actually have 2 Saints. The one in the picture is Addie. They are the sweetest dogs! As for the cat, she really belongs to my daughter. Thank goodness my dogs do well with cats! We are crazy enough without the madness that would ensue if they weren’t.

    G’Day from down under Rachealx4 :frow Welcome!

    I am pleased you delurked and 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.

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock or other critters, 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 ;)
