    My husband (26) and I (22) are from NW ohio and just recently bought a home in the country so I'm introducing him to the farm life! I used to show chickens, ducks, rabbits, and cows through 4h and FFA. We also raised hogs and pigeons when I was a child as well. My husband is completely new to the farm animal life so he's in for an adventure (lol) We have 2 dogs, a lab and a border collie/Australian shepherd, and 3 cats.
    we recently bought 12 chicks and 6 ducklings from Tractor Supply. 6 Rouen ducks, 3 Ameraucana, 4 mixed bantam, 3 barred rocks, and 2 buff orpingtons. We also have a trio of Brahma, and a trio of Isa Reds. We are building a coop and will be asking tons of questions during our chicken raising! We are excited to be a part of this group!

    G’Day from down under taylorlay :frow Welcome and Congratulations! :clap

    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.

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock or other critters, 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 ;)
