    Nope, you can't have just one, lol. Sounds like the chicken math bug hit you fast, glad you're enjoying your flock. What breeds do you have?

    Those are some nice breeds. Have you decided what you want to add to your flock?

    There are so many different ones to choose from, it can be challenging. You can look at the breed reviews to see what members have to say about the various ones. Another place that helped me was this site: sagehenfarmlodi.com. (I think that's the correct link.)

    G’Day from down under Sommerbrinkley [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy BYC. 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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
