    Hey Y'all,
    I have been coming to this website for advice on how to raise chickens. I acquired two rescue hens in 2014, and have since increased the flock. I now have a Buff orpington and a Barred Rock raised from chicks as well as one of the original Leghorn rescue hens. One, unfortunately, passed away from a prolapsed egg. I appreciate all of the great comments and feedback and look forward to learning more about this new lifestyle.

    Blessings,
    Karen

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    So sorry you lost a hen. It is never easy to lose them. But yes, chickens are addicting!! Just like potato chips, you can't have just one!

    Great to have you aboard and welcome to our flock!
