    Hi everyone!!![​IMG][​IMG] I am a stay at home mom of 7 wonderful kids and now 55 chickens! Yep I have the fever! I just wandered into the Tractor Supply Store to buy my 14 month old son a baby chick to play with. I had to buy 6 ( store policy ) Soooooo I am thinking ok. Kids will play with 'em for a few days and I will pass them on to a friend who raises chickens. I reasearched a little on these pullets I had bought. I am thinking, this would be neat to keep and have a few eggs every now and then. SOooo long story short, I have a trio of white silkies ( for pretty) and a trio of Silver Duckwing Bantams ( they are my babies) Leghorns ( a roo and 5 hens) Barred Rock ( 2 roos and about 7 hens) Some silver laced Wyandottes, some RIR and cornish and now an incubator with about 20 various eggs waiting to hatch next week!!!! I am enjoying this new 'way of life' and it is rewarding!!! Who knew chickens could be so much fun????

    I love the info I have gotten from BYC and love the forums!!! Hope to cluck with yall soon!!

    Welcome to BYC! You have come to the coolest place on the internet for chicken knowledge.

    I started with chickens last summer and the people of BYC have been great. This year I have tried hatching and buying chicks for even more chickeny joy. Please visit my BYC Page for my blog links that you may find informative or amusing.

    55! Talk about putting the pedal to the metal!
