    Hi! :D I'm Audrey, but you can call me Aud, or my username, PatrickRoo! I live mostly in Southern Illinois with my mom, my younger sister, and a TON of animals. 3 dogs, 6 cats, 2 rabbits, 33 poultry birds, and 2 guinea fowl. :)

    I'd love to meet you all and these first few days have been great! I've recently discovered that I love birds, and I'm addicted to them. I have spent hours and hours on BYC in the past, (secretly) and I love it! :wee I've only had birds since February but as soon as I picked up those first tiny chicks, I developed a HUGE "thing" for chickens, guinea fowl, turkeys and ducks.

    I don't have much more to say but thank you all for making my experience so far amazing! Here are some pictures of my chickens to show my gratitude! :lol:

    Hi :welcome Audrey!

    Glad you could join the flock! That's a lovely mix of animals you have there and I'm sure they must keep you very busy! Lovely pics you have posted there and what gorgeous birds you have.

    Good luck for the future and enjoy your time here on BYC :frow
