    Hello everyone. Thank you for allowing me to join byc. I've been lurking almost a year & decided to hop in today. Fairly new to chickens. Got 10 quite by accident last Easter. 9 of which were Roos.. Since then we've given away all but 4 of that batch & have added 1 more roo (snuck in a batch of pullets!!) & 19 hens. Basically I now have 20 hens & 4 roos. 2 of these roos seem to have a death wish... Sooo we will see. I'm getting on average 2 eggs a day :/ but my 12 babies are right at 6 mos old & we started getting tiny green eggs this week ;) looking forward to getting to know everyone better. Thanks for adding me.
