    Hey y'all, I am new to chicken raising ! Just ordered my chicken coop today and I am really excited to get started. Going to get the chicks soon. Any suggestions on breeds? They all look great, having a hard time deciding.
    I am married to a crazy country boy! Together we have two grown children and one 16 year old. and we have 8 grandchildren! We love gardening and fishing together. I do alot of baking and cooking.
    Looking forward to being a member of BYC!

    Greetings from Kansas, sadele64, and [​IMG]! Great to have you here! So many breeds from which to choose! Don't neglect the mixed flock. I have 19 birds made up from 11 different breeds - they get along great since I got them as baby chicks! Good luck to you and have fun on your chicken search!
