    Hello BYC community. I am from Cummington, MA and just joined this group today. I hope to learn where to buy some laying hens from around Hampshire, Franklin, and Berkshire counties. I currently have 4 Banty hens & 1 Banty rooster. Would like to add a few Aurcanas and maybe some sex-links to the flock. I have recently refurbished my chicken yard to prevent anymore weasal killings. My previous flock was annihilated the first week in Dec 2015 by weasal.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. Weasels are horrible and can squeeze through very small openings. Please check out the predator threads for the best advice at keeping them out.

    Hi and [​IMG] - glad that you have joined us.

    Once you have made 20 posts, you can participate on the "buy/sell/trade" forum, but theres no reason not to have a look to give you an idea on the breeds on offer.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - just type the name of your state in the search box.

    All the best
