    Hello. My husband and I have had our chickens for about 2 years now.believe it or not they actually come out of their coop in the morning to see me get in my car to go to work (it doesn't help that I wish them good morning).

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Chickens get very attached to attentive owners and can become very tame. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. What kind of chickens do you have?

    Welcome to the BYC! Glad you joined! When I used to open my back door, all my babies would come running. Maybe it was because I give them treats. :) It's still the cutest thing ever!

    Welcome to BYC - you can't always trust chickens - they come out to "make sure" you leave. Then they call their buddies and say "Parents are gone - PARTY PARTY PARTY!!![​IMG]

    Sorry too much time in below zero temps. Some hot cocoa will probably help[​IMG]

    You have some excellent layers. White Leghorns in particular are egg laying machines. You should get lots of nice, large eggs from your flock. :eek:)
