Hey, guys! I'm new to BYC and I'm loving it so far! I've been wanting to join BYC ever since I found this site and got my first batch of pullets about a year ago. I have 5 Plymouth Rock hens and a couple of months ago I bought 4 Sapphire Gem pullets (not completely sure that they all are pullets, though ). We have just recently built a small chicken coop for the Sapphire Gems (they just moved outside 2 nights ago ) and we are making plans to build a bigger run for all of them. I have one dog named Marley who loves to be around the chickens 24/7 ( although, I don't think the chickens could say the same thing about her). My family and I live on a small farm and we enjoy sitting on the back porch listening to the chickens all afternoon. I'm so excited to be joining BYC and I can't wait to meet people who enjoy raising chickens as much as I do!
