    Hello to everyone we have been using BYC in aid to a lot of our questions through out the 1st year of being chicken owners and figured it would be a good Idea to join the community that has helped answer every question we've ever had.
    So everyone knows we started our flock with 1 Frizzle, 3 Cochin/frizzle mixes, 1 Barnyard mix Roo, 3 Easter eggers, 1 RIR and 1 Cream Buff Orphington Roo. We had our set back starting off getting birds that weren't sexed properly then trying to find homes for 6 roosters. Cochiliousis took 3 of our birds before we got a handle on the situation. The birds listed are what we have now from the original group. This spring Chicken Math has hit and we have 6 red sexed links, 5 Barred Rocks and 1 RIR that are about 7 wks now, and we have 7 Easter Egger and 4 Black Australorps that were hatched 10 days ago. we have found that we have 3 Barred rock roos and the 1 lonely RIR we got is a roo. We have found homes for 1 Barred rock roo and are bringing the remaining to our local "chicken swap" this weekend.
    Glad and looking forward to all the information the other members and group have to offer and if we can share witht he rest as well.
