    Hi! Im Kirsten and i'm pretty new to the chicken world so please excuse me if I ask a lot of questions haha! I own one pulley now, she's almost a year. (A rough estimate. I rescued her from a factory farm). She's a black sumatra chicken and I love her to death! I also own a mini pig, and an 11yr old Appaloosa gelding! :)

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    So glad you could join our community! This IS the place to be to ask all those questions. We are just bursting at the seams with knowledge!

    Have you stopped by our learning center yet? Lots of helpful articles on caring for your bird...https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Sumatra's are a lovely breed! I like them because they look like crows. [​IMG]

    Enjoy your little pullet and welcome to our flock!

    Welcome to BYC, Kirsten! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm glad you were able to rescue your pullet. You should get another pullet to go with her as chickens are gregarious and like company. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your Black Sumatra.

    [​IMG] so glad you joined us. I agree, you need at least 2 more chickens…unless yours is a house pet.
