I am new to the group, but not entirely new to chickens. I have a nice mixed flock of English Orpingtons, Legbars, and a "few" others. The chickens are always teaching me something new, and I don't always have the answers. I have stalked this page for several years now and found many of the answers. I love all the wonderful people and encouragement that is evident in these threads. I decided to join to be able to further my knowledge, and pass on a little of my own. The catalyst for joining is a situation I'll post about in the appropriate section, while I hate the situation, I'm glad it finally led me to knock "join BYC" off my to do list. I am looking forward to being a member of this group.
