    Hi,
    We are very new to having backyard chickens: got our hens in August from a person who was moving out of state and needed to re-home her hens. We have 5 currently: a Delaware, Golden Laced Wyandotte, a Barred Rock, a Speckled Sussex and an Americauna. They are great layers and we are really enjoying them. We also have an elderly dog and 5 cats. this is a great website with so much great and friendly information! Very glad I've joined.

    G’Day from down under Kerntizo [​IMG] 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.

    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 [​IMG]
