    Hi! My name's Kelly. I'm from Maryland, and I'm a newbie when it comes to chickens. I had chickens the last 2 years and lost both mini flocks to a fox. Now with a heftier coop and a chicken guard dog, I'm ready to try again. My girls were family pets for me and my boys and we miss them dearly. Of course with the new baby I couldn't get my new coop built in time for chick season, but I hope to be able to bypass that. I haven't raised from eggs yet, but I'm hoping to change that in the future when I get an incubator or a silkie hen [​IMG] My favorite breed personality wise so far are orps, I had 3 buff as my first flock and they were just so incredible and more affectionate than even any dog I've ever had! I really would like to have a mini flock of a double laced barnvelder, a blue copper marans, a light brahma, a buff orp, a white silkie and an ameraucana. Of course I missed out on chick season and I don't know any good local breeders.
    I look forward to flocking with birds of a feather so I stop ruffling feathers on the people I talk to about them all the time [​IMG]

    Hello Kelly, [​IMG] from Australia!
    You've come to the right place if you want somewhere where peoples' feathers don't get ruffled. We're a big bunch of chicken nerds [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Sorry about your previous flocks, I think I have a bird who died too, one of my favourites, so I know it's pretty sad having to deal with the loss.
    I reckon all birds have absolutely great personalities if you get to know them... it's something really nice to see, them developing into their own characters [​IMG]

    Hope to see you more around the forum [​IMG]
