    Hello to all! I am fairly new to poultry, farming, and pretty much everything that goes with it. I am excited to meet new folks that share similar interests and likes! [​IMG]

    Thank you all for such welcoming posts. Michael OShay, yes I do have chickens. I have been reading and learning for some time now and finally decided to join. This is only my second season with poultry. Last season I had one Bourbon Red, two Easter eggers, two barn yard hens and one barn yard roo. This will be my second year on my "city farm" and I have added quite a few critters. I currently have eater eggers, Cuckoo Marans, Black Australorps, New Hampshire Reds, Polish, what I suspect to be Buff Orphingtons & Barred Rocks, and of course my barn yard mixes. It just wouldn't be complete with out a few unique barn yard mixes. I also have turkeys (blacks, royals, blues, bourbons, a possible Narraganset, BBW and BBB). The BBW and BBB are for Christmas and New Years dinners [​IMG]. 90% of my flock is new this season. Can you tell I went a little out of control? [​IMG]
    I have relied on the info of you kind folks to guide me and my young flock through all our ups and downs. For that I thank this site and all of you!

    NorthFLChick, I will definitely make my way over and soak up all the good info. Thanks!

    Very few BYC members are immune to chicken math. :eek:) You have a nice mix of breeds. Black Australorps are my favorite standard breed; very hardy, calm and gentle, and excellent layers of large, brown eggs. Good luck with your flock.

    Yes Black Australorps make great pets! I currently only have one, and I really hope it's a hen and not a roo. If it is a hen, it isn't laying yet and if it's a roo it isn't crowing yet. They look really nice with all their blues and greens on their otherwise all black feathers.
