    Hi all,
    I’ve been a silent stalker on BYC for a while, and an actual member for a couple weeks. I skipped the introduction part when I joined though, so here is my late intro!

    My husband & I live in the Atlanta area, and we first got chickens in May 2017. We started out with a small coop and three pullets. This spring however chicken math hit full force and we now have 10 hens and 1 rooster. :lol:

    I love all the different breeds of chickens out there, so we have a flock of all different breeds with the exception of two EEs. We also enjoy naming our chickens, they are all “old lady”/old fashioned names!

    Maude - EE
    Gladys - SLW
    Doris - RIR
    Edith - red sex-link
    Henrietta - EE
    Betty - Buff Orphington
    Hazel - dark Brahma
    Adelaide - sapphire gem
    Constance - ameraucana
    Gertrude - BCM
    Humphrey - bantam Cochin

    I found out about BYC from internet searches for questions I had, this is such a great community!!

    My main pursuit at the moment is taking care of my new (human!!) daughter, so the BYC forums make for great browsing while I’m feeding her! I also have two dogs and a sizeable collection of plants. Husband & I hope to move to a couple of acres in the near-ish future so we can also acquire some goats, and maybe a duck or two, and a pet cow. :D

    Welcome to BYC. :frow You will love your time spent here, but you already know that!
    I love your mixed flock. We have a lot of the same birds, except for your dark Brahma and your Sapphire Gem, those are the ones I don’t have. I enjoy looking at all the different breeds across my yard.
    I just love Humphrey. I don’t know why but I just can’t seem to take a Bantam Cochin rooster seriously for some reason. He is so stinking cute. I finally got a full size partridge Cochin pullet this past spring and I love her to death. Her name is Cocoa.
    I used to live in Dalton, GA but moved to Centre, AL 10 years ago so I feel like we live really close :highfive:, well comparatively speaking, since this site has people from all over the world. Anyway, once again, :welcome!
