    Hello, new here to BYC :) we live in central Ontario, and relatively new to keeping chickens. We have a total of 24 chickens, a mix of RIR, red and black link, barred and Plymouth Rock, New Hampshire reds, Ameraucanas and Copper Marans :) we have to admit we are in love with our flock.
    I originally picked up 3 Ameraucanas for eggs and they all turned out to be roosters - so I'm currently looking to possibly trade with anyone in my area for any hens around the same age (4 months). I have placed an ad in the local classifieds but no luck. And here I am thinking how can someone not want an Ameraucana [​IMG]
    Well I'm thrilled to be here and learn from lots of experts and such!
