Hello from Vancouver Island!!

Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by halfbakedtulip, Nov 20, 2013.

  1. Hello everyone :) I guess I am a little late to be introducing myself as I have already asked questions here lol. I live on Vancouver Island with my military husband, our 10 year old, 2 shih-tzus and 2 new to us hens.

    We have Banty who is a silver laced sebright who we rescued and her new companion a 16 week old milles fleur/ silkie mix named Charlotte. It has been a harrowing week or so getting everything they need and finding the right companion for Banty. We did have a large Rhode Island Red for 48 hours but she was so wild we had to give her back to the people who gave her to us. She was pecking Banty and bit me ack!

    We are first time chicken owners and I admit I am overly worried/cautious and trying to do everything "right".I apologize in advance for any questions I have that may seem crazy (you won't know if you don't ask)

    Here is a not so good pic of our ladies
    [​IMG] and their coop plus the run I built for them yesterday!

    [​IMG]I want to thank your husband for his time in service. Your set up is very nice- and so are your girls. You will find a lot of answers to questions you don't even have yet, in the Learning Center.
