I am a new BYC member in Virginia. I live in Floyd County, about an hour from Virginia Tech, an hour from the NC state line, and an hour and a half from Roanoke. I have kept chickens on and off from childhood. Right now I have 2 white silkie hens and a roo, a Rhodie, a white Leghorn, and Black Australorp, a Sussex mix, a little black cochin mix, 1 mixed female duck, and 4 male mixed ducks I am trying to rehome. The rhodie and the leghorn are "rescues", they were the sole surviving members of flocks killed by dogs, and are about 3 years old. The rest are about a year old. I am looking forward to finding some chicken, duck, turkey, geese, and other back yard flock folks close by to help, swap, buy, sell and talk to.
