    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! Oh wow that is a fantastic flock you have! A 12 year old polish :eek: That is an excellent age. I have mainly polish amd love them to bits, very quirky but lots of fun.

    I'm sure members over in the emergencies injuries disease amd cure section will be able to help you. Good luck.

    Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    Hi, Kerri. I'm in Wasilla. I have one tiny bantam Easter egger pullet! How's that for chicken ranching? But I've had her nine months, so I do have some experience now. She's the little black one in the front in my avatar. All the others turned out to be roos.

    I'm also new to the forum and haven't posted much, either. But I've been reading the site for a long time.

    I have the materials on hand to build a coop, and I plan on getting more chickens soon. I want very sweet birds, because I mother everything. Recently a local woman recommended speckled Sussex for the very sweetest natured chickens. What do you think?

    I love my bantam, and I really would like more, but I'm torn. The breeds I want are hard to come by in bantam form.

    Nice to meet you and I hope we talk chickens more.

    your neighbor,

    susan

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. My family and I have visited Alaska on several occasions and love it there. :eek:) X2 on ChickenFarmWife; if you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
