Hi. I live in SLC Utah and am new to keeping backyard chickens. I currently have 3 - a light brahma (Pearl), a barred rock (The Rock), and a black sex link (Black Betty). The sex link and brahma are laying but the barred rock is not as of yet. So far it's been a lot of fun and I wish I could have more! At first I let them roam freely in the yard, but that doesn't work so well with the dogs. So my husband fenced off the back part of our yard and it's worked out perfectly! BYC has been my top resource for everything I've learned and the first place I come to when I have questions. Looking forward to being a part of the community.
