    After lurking around here for about a year I decided to join and say thanks to BYC and the many members who have helped me get started with my flock and coop. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever expect I would someday be raising a bunch of chickens in my backyard!

    It all started after becoming close friends to a family in our neighborhood who gave us a dozen eggs from their backyard chickens. We cooked them up that night and as I ate those delicious eggs I looked at my wife and said, "lets do it!". We currently have 10 lovely birds: 2 White Rocks, 2 Buff Orps, 2 Amaraucanas, 1 Barred Rock, 1 Welsummer, 1 Speckled Sussex and 1 Golden Sex Link.

    Congrats and [​IMG]

    We didn't expect to raise chickens either until we found a dozen bantams in a box. We rescued them and were hooked ever since.

    Definitely in the right place for people to help you with any questions you may have along the way. [​IMG]
