    Hi all,

    I'm happy to become part of BYC and to finally be involved in chickens! I've been researching and talking about chickens for about 10 years, and I am finally in the position to have them. As of about 2 weeks ago, I am officially a chicken person. [​IMG] I have 7 chicks in all (about 2.5 weeks old): Silver Laced Wyandotte, Golden Laced Wyandotte, Buff Orpington, Golden Cuckoo Maran, Easter Egger, Light Brahma, and one Meyer Meal Maker (which I believe is a Barred Rock). We are currently building the coop while the ladies occupy a cardboard freezer box/brooder in the basement. (Modeling the coop after the Palace Coop from BYC!)

    So happy to be here!

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. You have a nice mix of breeds. I love the calm and gentle temperaments of the Buff Orpingtons, and the Easter Eggers are my granddaughter's favorite chickens. She loves their colored eggs. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in building your coop.
