    Welcome to Backyard chickens!!!

    I am semi new to chickens as I got my first ones the beginning of this year. I got my first trio March 3 and on March 17th, I got 27 day old chicks from Meyer hatchery. On June 1st, I got 15 more chicks for my belated birthday.

    I currently have 35 chickens, I recently had a predator attack and lost 5 of my birthday babies. And I am trying to get rid of 2 of my roosters.

    Hmmm. I am not sure I can remember all my breeds. Golden Laced Wyandottes, Silver laced Wyandottes, Partridge Plymouth rocks, Speckled Sussex, Buff Orpingtons, White Leghorn, Light Brahma, Black Australorp, and Welsummers. I attached the link that you can post pictures of your chickens and people will tell you what breeds they are.

    I found out about BYC by googling chicken questions and always ending up on here.

    Uhhhhh. Other hobbies. Chickens. And Chickens. lol I am a swimmer. I guess that counts as another hobby.

    My life...I live on 22 acres in the Blue ridge mountains with cows, pigs, dogs and a cat.

    WELCOME TO BACKYARD CHICKENS!!!! You sound like you are going to be fun to have around! I hope you have as much fun as I have had!

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you. If you are curious about what breeds you have, you can post photos of them in the "What Breed or Gender is This?" forum.

    Welcome to Backyard Chickens, I think I saw your post on "what breed or gender is this." you first name is very distinctive. Otherwise I can't recall much of anything at my age.
