    I've just gotten my first chicks. Got 4 Cream Leghorns today and hope to get Golden Comets quickly. Mine will be backyard chickens. I've been doing research but still have a lot to learn. We also currently have 3 dogs (2 from shelters) and bearded dragon. I've worked in dog rescue previously, am newly retired, love gardening, crochet, and my grandchildren. Love watching my beautiful new babies. Can't wait to learn on here.

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

    Congratulations, very exciting!

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    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. 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]
