I'm "kinda" new to BYC. I've followed this website since the spring when my husband and I decided it would be great to have chickens. I've been wanting to become a member for a while but I just didn't get around to it until my Red started acting sick. But I'm happy I finally signed up! We have a flock of 12 chickens of various breeds. I love spending time with them. I work from home so I spend a lot of time with them everyday feeding them treats and talking to them and hanging out during my break time. They are such sweethearts! We have a dominique, delaware, partridge rock, brown porceline wyandotte, cucko maran, buff orpington, 3 rhode island reds and 3 black astralorps. I'm looking forward to being apart of the forum!
