My name is Melany Strader. I have a wonderful husband named Eric, a daughter (9) named Sydney and a son (6) named David. We are from Ruffin, NC (not far from Greensboro) and have 11 baby chicks. My mom built us a coop for the chickens and we are going to put the fence up tonight. This is the first time we have raised chickens and the kids love them!
Our chicks are currently 5 weeks old and growing fast! We bought them from Tractor Supply and they are Bantams. Only one looks like it may be a Silkie, not sure yet. That is also the one the kids named Chicken Little, but it is twice the size of the others.
We found BYC as we were researching different topics on raising chickens and I come here daily!
We have one female lab/schnauzer mix, three indoor cats and 11 chickens! We have 2 acres in the middle of 300 and our house is almost one mile of the dead end road we live on.
Looking forward to meeting others!
