    My name is Candace and I've been reading/watching BYC for quite a while now and finally decided why not join such a fine group of people. Now I've had ornimental small birds for years but this is the first time of getting into chickens of my own. Now while not exactly new to them, this is the first time I've had them of my own. I've delt with chickens for a couple of years but again they weren't mine. At the moment I would say I have 9 chickens all together. They span the range from 2 RiR, 1 Amricanas, 1 Cochin, 2 silky/brahama cross, 1 RIR/Brahama cross and 2 RIR/Americana cross. Out of this conglomeration I have 1 RIR roo (full of attitude) 1 silky/brahama roo, and 2 rir/americana roos, the last three having grown up together. Everything else is hens. I found BYC when I first ran into a case of bumble foot in my step dads flocks (also where I ended up with most the mixed chickens I have now). Couldn't have made it through with out you guys and all the information you had out there on it.
    Animals are fairly much my hobbies. I do enjoy reading and working on the computer, but it's my pets that keep me going. I have quite a zoo of pets; 4 dogs, 6 cats, 4 snakes, 1 gecko, 9 chickens and what ever wanders up or gets abandoned to me, I just can't turn away animals in need. So that's me! Nice to meet all Y'all!

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

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. As you mentioned, 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]
