    Hi, my roommate and I are college students living in rural/suburban Georgia who decided to take up backyard chicken raising together. We’ve had chickens for about nine months now, and we have 3 fully grown Rhode Island Red hens, and a Buff Orpington, Black Australorp, and Silver Laced Wyandotte who are about 4 months old now. So six chickens in total.

    Sounds like you have a nice mixed flock! If you'd like to share a photo, we'd like to see it (always fun to see another member's flock).

    Make yourself at home here and if you need anything just post...someone will be along to help.

    G’Day from down under Olive_C :frow Welcome!

    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.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

    Personally, I have found the Topic of the Week articles a great resource and a one stop shop for questions which may have already been discussed within the BYC membership group.

    As N F C hinted, if you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, 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 ;)
