    Hello, everyone here on BackYard Chickens! I just wanted to introduce myself! I'm Skye/Skylar (IDC which one you call me) and I live in Seneca, South Carolina. (Small state, small town. )

    I am not an adult (Quite far from being one, actually.) but I'm not going to say my age on here.

    I love drawing and most of all, chickens!

    I like drawing chickens. Hmm.

    Anyways, I am getting chickens (4 or 6

    chickens...can't decide yet) in June. I am probably ordering them from Meyer Hatchery. My brother and I both enjoy these cute, fluffy and sweet birds. I can't wait till we get them!

    Until then, I will be asking for a few suggestions, tips, and advice on raising chickens (and chicks!).

    welcome and keeping chickens can be fun, i have 8 13 week old chicks i got from meyers. there shipping was prompt, they came a day early.all the chicks were healthy. there were 17, i ordered all hens and only one was a roo. so there sexing is pretty good. i gave the rest to people i know who were starting new flocks. hope you enjoy your new hobby, and you can find pretty much everything you need to know right here.

    ps, most of the time if you dont say anyhing about your age no one would have a clue.
