I have been reading into chickens for a while now and also visited BYC quite a bit before starting to build our first chicken coop. So finally I couldn't resist anymore and had to join. Let me answer some of the BYC questions: (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? Yes we are new to chickens, we picked up our first chickens ever on April 19th, 2009. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? We picked up 3 but after one died last night we now have 2 left. (3) What breeds do you have? Salmon Faverolles I must say reading a lot of the posts on BYC helped with a lot of questions. And after reading for so long now I thought it is time to register and send a warm Hello from Sweden to everybody on BYC!
