    So excited to be a part of BYC! I should be getting 10 layers this spring, and maybe a few meat chickens too. Are there any certain breeds you guys prefer? Again, so excited and can't wait to start learning :)!

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

    Good luck with your venture into chickens.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. 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]

    The chickens I've enjoyed the most have been Speckled Sussex and the red sex girls...the first for their beautiful feathering & personalities and the second for their eggs & wackiness.

    No matter what you end up with, have fun and enjoy!
