    Hi my husband and myself have some experience with chickens over the years. We are now homesteaders and are exploring the concept of a self sustained chicken flock. We have a dozen golden comets right now that my husband is in love with ( he is the chicken man) and I would like to start some buff orpingtonsbreeding and hatching their own chicks. Hope to get some good info and input on things as we go

    G’Day from down under Quinnchicks :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.

    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.

    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 ;)
