    Just wanted to say hello. I had chickens as a child but have not even been around them in 25 years. This means I am a newbie! Started out wanting 6 hens. I got 10 straight run locally. I picked up 2 wheaton and 2 black Ameraucanas and 2 Welsummers. Then went to another lady and picked up a lavender Ameraucana, 2 EE, and 1 that I think was in by mistake and is 1 of her Seramas. Then I ended up getting 6 Silver Laced Wyandotte pullets from a local feed store. So I now have to build a coop for 16. Well thats me in a nutshell i have 3 dogs,4 cats, 4 parrots (1 is a bg macaw) and 1 horse!

    Welcome to BYC, and good luck with your chicks. Your rapidly expanding flock is typical of chicken math. [​IMG]

    Hope you don't end up with a ton of cockerels. Buying straight run - usually ends up that way.[​IMG]

    Hi! I live in Central Florida too! I'd love to see some pictures of your ladies. I got a bunch of SLW from Hortmeyer back in February. Just started getting eggs from them when 4 of my 7 were attacked while I was out of town. I have 1 Easter Egger, 2 SWL, 2 mixed, 1 laying Cuckoo Maran, 5 2 week old French Wheaten Marans, 4 2 week old Cuckoo Marans, and 1 2 week old Barred Rock.
