    Hello! Thanks for letting me join. I have had chickens for about four years now. My avatar is my rooster, Elvis, who lives up to his name as he is always singing and is a hunka hunka burnin love! :) Elvis was supposed to be a partridge Plymouth rock, but I'm quite sure he's not a purebred, lol, but he sure is pretty. We have 18 hens, a mix of breeds, mostly brown egg layers. We usually get our birds from the feed store, but Elvis and 9 girls we got from a small backyard hatchery not too far from us. We've had lots of ups and downs, mostly involving predators for the downs. :(

    Anyway, I am looking forward to meeting folks and chatting!

    Welcome to BYC, Laurel. Glad you decided to join our flock. Elvis is certainly a beautiful rooster and with 18 hens you won't have to worry about him over-breeding them. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with Elvis and the ladies. :eek:)
