    Hello! I recently purchased my first set of chickens and have been using this site as a resource. They are now 10 weeks old (13 total). My family (wife and four kids) recently moved out to the country in Atlanta, Indiana. Thanks to all here for providing your very helpful and knowledgeable insight.

    drumstick diva,
    I've been looking for a way to get in contact with locals. Thank you for the advice!

    N F C,
    I ordered the "Choice Layers" package from Murray McMurrary (we lost 3 of the 16 and ended up getting one cockerel) and have the following:
    2 - Cuckoo Marans (a pullet and a cockerel)
    2 - Leghorn (Pearl White)
    1 - Hamburg
    2 - Star (Red)
    2 - Leghorn (Brown) or Welsummer (I'm not sure yet...)
    4 - Easter Egger

    See below pic of all of them.

    Hi welcome to Backyard Chickens. That looks like a beautiful flock. I hope you enjoy your Marans as much as I do.

    G’Day from down under sethpeters [​IMG] Welcome!

    Congratulations on your new feathered family members, they are adorable!

    I hope you enjoy BYC. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
