    Just wanted to say hello. Been lurking for a couple days and have decided to join. Seems like a very knowledgeable and active community here; so I'm not sure I can add much, but hope to learn and pass it on some day.

    Thank you for the welcome.

    My dad has chickens and I have helped him with them over the years. They are White LEghorns.

    A 4h buddy told me about this site. I am looking for a new breed to raise myself and he said this was a good place to look.

    What purpose do you want to raise them for? Meat, eggs, pets?

    Well, I'm really liking historical chickens that were important around the founding of the USA. So I guess a dual purpose breed like a dorking or Dominique.

    Want them for eggs, meat, and show.

    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]
