I've been a lurker on BYC for quite a few years. After I sold off my chickens and moved out of state I stopped coming on this wonderful forum, so I lost all my info/etc. But I've moved back to the beautiful southern Oregon coast on my original acreage and have just ordered up some new chicks to restart my flock. So I decided I had rejoin the ranks on BYC. In the past I have had: RIR, Buff Orps, Black Australorps, EE's, Silver Marans, French copper marans, and a few others. I usually try to keep my flocks down to about 15 birds or so. I'm excited to be back on here. Love this site and the people, advice and photos!!
