    My name is Lynn, I live in Maryland, I've been lurking for a while but am feeling brave enough to start participating.

    I'm new to chickens and got by first 1/2 dozen chicks last march from my local feed store. ( still have the 5 ladies, the Roo had to find a new home to keep my neighbors happy) Those 6 have all grown up and started laying eggs and I've currently got about a dozen new chicks I'm raising.

    The chicken bug has got me bad. I just love my girls- even more than I ever expected. Something about them just makes me so happy.

    Right now my adult flock consists of 2 buff orphingtons ( Marshmallow and Peep) , 2 barred rocks ( Roxy and Charlotte) , 1 Easter Egger (Tiny)

    My Chicks are a combo of couple of silkies ( Ava, Pearl and Poppy) , a polish ( Gaga), A Welsummer named June that I suspect is a Roo and an asortment of mystery chicks for me to figure out and name still ( I ordered a bantam assortment )

    It's nice to have found a place that likes chickens as much as I do

    Sounds like you are well on your way to becoming a bantam expert. Nice to meet you and welcome. I understand the obsession and happiness too. Angela (dsquawker)
