    hi all!!! im new to the backyard farming scene. my boyfriend and i started with a couple of rhode island reds for eggs in april and have since grown to 15 total...standards, bantums, and chicks. We now have wyndottes, americaunas, barred rocks, and some others that I don't remember the breeds of. [​IMG] I should mention that all of our birds have names and our kids love to hold and play with them. [​IMG] We live in the Shenandoah Valley in Va. My boyfriend has built our chicken coop and bantum house for the not-chicks-any-more birds. Our chicks are residing in the living room right now. I'm a city girl and NEVER could have imagined myself having so much fun with chickens! I'm a teacher and, therefore, I'm off in the summer. I have to admit I'm loving watching the baby chicks grow and change each day! I'm so glad I get to be home with them every day!

    Thank you for this forum! I have already found answers to questions I've had and they've been very helpful. I look forward to spending more time reading the threads.

    [​IMG] Hi, chicklet. Welcome from Australia!
    This site is a wonderful place. I've met so many good people on here and learned many awesome things... and not just about chickens either! [​IMG]

    15, all with names?! Wow, I think I'd have a hard time with maybe 7 or 8! I've got 4, so it's easy enough. My memory's going on me, and I'm still in my teens... ask any of my pals, they'll tell you I sometimes ask them the same question maybe three times in a week. Exactly the same question. [​IMG]

    I live smack bang in the middle of the city as well. I never imagined my family keeping chooks and having a massive veggie patch round the back... just didn't associate that kind of thing with the city, but I think it's great [​IMG]
