    Apr 26, 2017
    Grew up around chickens, but never owned any until about 2 months ago. Right now I have 10 that are 5 - 8 months old outside. Yesterday I built a new pen and moved 12 young ones outside. That leaves about 15 inside ranging from just hatched to about 4 weeks old. I also have 11 ducks outside that are about 2 months old and 2 inside in one of the bathtubs that are about 3 weeks old. I've found it's easier to clean. There are also 2 peacocks (1 blue and 1 pied 9 months old) and one 10 month old Bourdon Red turkey. I have several breeds of chickens. I love to sew but haven't found time to with the chicks.

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

    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.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
