    I was raised on the farm and stayed there till I was 18. I'm now 62 and living in SoCal with my better half :) and we have a backyard mixed flock of 14 atm. Buff and White Orps make for five of them. We also have Barred Rocks (three) Columbian Wyandottes (three) and Jersey Giants (three). We also have in our brooder atm six SL Wyandottes which are 4 weeks old.
    We had chickens on the farm and as a kid was always intrigued that they always followed me around, jumped up in my lap and sat there with me. I had to retire from trucking and was at it for thirty plus years. Being forced into it so to say was hard so I needed something to do and chickens was it, and here we are today. Look forward to chatting on the forums with you all

    Glad you're here Jeff!

    A must have for your poultry is a FIRST AID KIT for any issues that would arise. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/suggestions-for-a-first-aid-kit.1150128/)
    It's definitely better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.

    Also, make sure your coop(s) have a proper amount of VENTILATION. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/ar...-there-and-cut-more-holes-in-your-coop.47774/) Your chickens will absolutely thank you for it!

    One last thing, if you're into gardening, feel free to join this years SEED SWAP (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/seed-swap.1220129/)

    Hello Jeff :frow welcome to BYC! There’s so many helpful, knowledgeable folks here and I’m sure you’ll find this site a very useful resource. I hope you enjoy it as much as we all do.

    G'Day from down under Jeff :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.

    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, 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 ;)

    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.

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