    After a few months of planning, I have become one of you!

    We have a mixed flock. 5 hens that currently lay- 3 Buffs, an "easter egger," and a Barred Rock. We also have 3 pullets, that should start laying in August- 2 Sicilian Buttercups, and a half easter egger/buttercup.

    They're all still pretty skittish around me, but we're growing to know each other. I'm here to learn as much as possible!

    Welcome to BYC, and congratulations on your new flock. Move slowly, talk quietly to them, and 'feed' - they will become your buddies.

    Hi Diva,
    We have a Border Collie/Husky mix and a Catahoula hound.

    The addition of the flock sure has brought out the hound dog in the Catahoula.

    Thank you - I was born a dog lover much to my parents chagrin. They hoped I would outgrow it. NEVER!!!
