Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Raising chickens is great experience for children. My grandaughter (pictured in my avatar), loves our chickens. She's made lap pets out of our Black Australorps and Buff Orpingtons. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Do you know what breed of chickens you're going to be getting?
