    Good afternoon,

    My name is Maggie and I live is Boise, ID. I have entertained the idea of having a backyard flock for about a year and yesterday I FINALLY did it!! I came home with a Polish Crested, Arucana, and a Cuckoo Maran. And the little chicken nuggets are doing just fine [​IMG]. By Monday I will be adding a cream Legbar and a Bielefelder, and Wednesday a Welsummer. I can't wait for all the colorful eggs!

    Welcome to BYC, Maggie. Glad you decided join to our flock. Congratulations on the new chickens. Just be sure that you have the coop/run space for that many chickens as overcrowding can quickly lead to aggression, fighting, biting and feather plucking, and even cannibalism. You're definitely going to have a colorful egg basket. In my personal opinion, the chocolate eggs of the Cuckoo Marans are the prettiest eggs in the chicken world. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
