    I am a twenty eight year old city woman (Apparently Toms River, New Jersey is considered a city.) living in a small town just outside Colorado. I live with my life partner, who works on a dairy, and my four fur-sons and a dogter. I also have three indoor cats and one indoor henlet (named Delta) that all strut my home. Outside, I have three toms and one molly. And in my backyard, a small but growing flock consisting of the following;
    one drake mallard
    one buff duck
    one frizzle bantam
    one sultan rooster
    one sebright bantam
    one silkie bantam
    one easter egger
    two buff cochins
    four amberlinks
    two polish
    and two delaware.
    I like variety. It is a problem. >_>; I'm continually adding to my flock at every chance, much to my partners dismay. But it's alright. He enjoys the eggs and he enjoys seeing me at peace. I've referenced and browsed this site on many occasions to find help with my growing flock. And I'm sure my partner would appreciate all the help, too.
    (fyi, my handle is an old middle school name that has so far stuck for years. I promise I'm nice.)

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. Have you checked out the Learning Center? It is a great place to start a chicken education. Once your chicks are 6 weeks old - you may like to post individual photos of them at "what breed or gender is this." to discover hims/hers.

    [​IMG][​IMG] some of my flock. My sebright is amazingly photogenic. And fairly curious of my phone.

    Welcome to BYC! Sounds like such a fun flock and the pictures are so cute! I love the sebright's lacing! This is a great resource and there are so many helpful people here. If you ever have any questions, feel free to ask! I'm sure anyone would be glad to help in any way. Good luck and thanks for joining us here at BYC!
