    I have always wanted chickens growing up. I'm a vet tech and I just all kinds of animals. My husband and I live in a housing addition, but we decided, well I decided :), to start my childhood dream and I bought a couple chicks just about 4 days ago. They are (some sort of) Porcelain D'uccle Bantam mixes. They are only about a week old but I love them already...just wish I knew if I got hens or roosters...

    Anyways, still reading and learning how to handle these guys to make sure they are healthy and safe :)

    Love to chat so feel free to message me!
    Here's a picture of my babies!

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I love your avatar and your chicks are adorable. When I started to college back in the early 70s, I initially planned on major in Veterinary Medicine. I later changed my major (for reasons that are too complex to to state briefly), and ended up majoring in Earth Science instead, but I've always had a love for animals. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.

    Thank you guys!! I'm such an animal lover. We have our dogs and cats, and once my husband and I got married he started up a fish tank again and that was cool but I just always wanted chickens. It was a spur of the moment decision and I'm just thrilled to have them. They make me happy. And I'm a reader anyways so I've basically read all there is to read about them by now lol I'm learning a lot. I just love them :)

    This one is my favorite. Hoping she turns out to be a she, and a porcelain d'uccle.
