    Hi I'm Gracie! I live just a bit south of Atlanta GA! I'm new to BYC and fairly new to chickens. We got our first hens last year but they disappeared (We suspect our old dog.. he had to be given away). We then received 10 more from a friend and now we're down to 2 (We got rid of the dog very recently). We just got 45 more chicks (30 assorted brown layers and 15 meat birds). I'm glad I finally joined because I will most definitely have more questions!

    I would suggest building a good, solid enclosed run with cover for your flock to prevent them from "disappearing."

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] I agree with DD, a nice secure coop and run will help prevent disappearences. Have a look through the Learning Center for more on chicken keeping and also predator protection.
