    I'm moving to Chaparral at the end of the month and as soon as I move I'm going to start getting chicken things ready.

    We raised a flock of chickens one year when I was little and I remember how much fun it was. Looking online I see that we were pretty fairly information deprived though! So glad you guys are here and hopefully I'll have something good to contribute to the community!

    I'm planning on getting a bunch of Dark Cornish chickens and harvesting up the roosters and keeping the girls around for looks/eggs/company. I like the fat buff orpingtons too lol - but it gets pretty hot here!

    Profile pic is me holding a rooster that was given to me - it was 'eat it or the city of Rio Rancho gets it'! So he gave us a delicious soup :)

    Looking forward to participating!

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us.

    If you check out the Learning Centre, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things chicken.


    Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (just type your state in the search box). In fact, the search box should become your best friend [​IMG] Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best
