    Hello! I’ve recently fallen in love with raising chickens! I have a small flock of 2 Silkies, an Icelandic Hen, a Bantam mix that I incubated, a Buff Orp, a Light Brahma and an Araucana..we plan to build a much larger coop next year and increase our flock! I’m excited to get to know all you knowledgeable chicken lovers!

    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.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

    Hello and welcome! What does an Icelandic Hen look like? I'm new to chickens and am not aware of all the breeds.
