    I am 76 years old, have a small farm, breed miniature cattle we have 2 ponies, 2 goats several dogs and cats but it never felt right. Something was missing then one day I knew what it was "Chickens" the farm needed some chickens. I promptly purchased a rooster and two hens. Now when the rooster crows all seems right

    Thanks, I am a little challenged by all this computer stuff it took me two days to get this far. I will just have to play around this site to find out all the information that's seems to be available. There is trouble in paradise however so I am going to the forum to see how to ask for help.

    G'Day from down under Russbycuss :frow Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock and/or other critters, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.
