    Hi!

    I'm Brynn and am COMPLETELY new to BYC but couldn't be more excited! We are looking to add some pullets to our family in the spring (just for egg laying) and I want to be as educated as I can possibly be, having no first hand experience! I'm really interested in Easter Eggers and Orpingtons, but could use advice! :)
    Found this site through a few friends who had actually "liked" the facebook page.
    I love cooking (studied culinary arts), knitting, and am getting more into gardening and DIY (and of course I love animals ;) )
    I'm married with 2 kiddos (3 girl and 1 boy), a French Bulldog/Heeler Mix, and a sweet, splotchy tabby.

    Glad to be here!

    Hi and :welcome

    Best of luck getting started - chickens make great pets and it'll be fun for your kids as well :lol: Chickens pretty much just need food, water and shelter. It doesn't have to be too fancy, our chooks sleep in an old shed with nothing but a roost in it, and they free range in the garden during the day.

    Enjoy the site. :D

    Alright then and [​IMG] great to have you [​IMG]

    Education is very important nothing like it and BYC has a very nice library to look through and plenty of different Forums to choose from to ask all your Chicken question's [​IMG]

    EE's are a great starter Chicken and not hard to acquire [​IMG] ..........
