    Hello all! As the title there says, new to the group and I just started putting together a coup here recently. I am a 28 year old mom of 2 great little boys and I am trying to get myself in the sustainable game. : ) SO I thought to myself if I want to raise chickens and get a garden going this year, then maybe it would be nice to have some fellow enthusiasts to talk with.

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

    Best of luck with your venture!

    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]

    Hi! I know you posted a few months ago, but I'm hoping your still around...or anyone is around. I'm in Appling, GA and just purchased my first group of chicks. Four Red Stars and Two barred rocks.
