    I just signed up to BYC because we are in the up-to-our-noses research in urban backyard chickens. Our Borough recently changed its ordinances on backyard chickens, so we're hoping to have a group of 6 girls (no roosters allowed, unfortunately) either this summer or next summer. I am picking up the permit paperwork this afternoon to see what's required as far as space, containment, etc.

    SOOOOOO excited to get this underway!!!

    Good luck. I have had mine for a year now and hope to get some chicks soon. They are so much fun to watch and the eggs are so much better then store bought. YOU will love raising them.

    G’Day from down under mharden03 [​IMG] Welcome!

    That is exciting and I wish you all the best!

    I 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.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock when they arrive or your coop build, 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 [​IMG]
