Hi...I've been a member for a few weeks but haven't gotten around to introducing myself yet. But, so far I have found BYC to be very resourceful and informative. I am new to chickens and when my son brought home 13 a few months ago I was furious. HAHA.....we now have 21 and they quickly became mine instead of his. I love love love taking care of them and interacting with them. We have a little variety in our flock with some RIR's, White Leghorns, Golden Comets, EE's, Red Sex Links, and Bantams. We just rehomed our Barred Rocks because they were just a little to bossy and were causing bloodshed among the docile ones. We also have 3 Guineas and I love to hear them talk. We don't free range the chickens YET, but the Guineas stay out all the time. We have lots of trees for them at night. I live on a farm and don't have neighbors so I don't have to worry about my roosters. As a matter of fact, I welcome theirs crows all day long! Anyway, I'm looking forward to learning so much more and BYC is my go-to place for information. This site rocks!!
