    I'm new to raising backyard chickens. We have 7 Orpingtons and recently added an additional 9 baby Bantams. We are going on our third year. We started with just three Buff Orpington hens,added four more the following spring, a Lavender, Lavender splash, a Partridge and a Black Orpington. This year we decided to add the smaller Dominique bantams and Golden lace. I'm still in the learning phase and so grateful to have found a forum of like minded folks wiling to answer questions and share Thier love for backyard chickens, as I do. Thank you!

    G’Day from down under 16BYChickens [​IMG] Welcome!

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    Best wishes to you and your flock.

    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. 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]
