    Hi my name is Dawn and I have been reading backyard chickens for quite some time and am looking forward to learning more and educating myself by what everybody else is doing, my husband had gotten me into raising chickens he has his I have mine right now, I have my own leghorns that I strictly take care of and I also have my silkies that I take care of and and right now in the middle of incubating my first silkie eggs my rooster Leghorn passed away over the winter was going to Have more Leghorns but that will have to unfortunately be much later now...Am excited to learn from everybody on here and thankyou for having me to your group...

    Greetings from Kansas, Dawn, and [​IMG]! Great to have you aboard! BYC is a great place to gain poultry knowledge and it sounds like you will have some to lend out yourself. Best wishes and thanks for joining this fine community! [​IMG]

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

    I am sorry to hear about your rooster [​IMG]

    We only have a small flock of 5 pet bantams but we both love them very much. I think it is nice when a couple have an interest they can share. Hubby has his favourite gal, LuLu and is not too much into the sharing of the cleaning but enjoys his role of Chief Meal Worm Feeder [​IMG]

    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]

    Thankyou everyone for making me feel at home and although my husband is the one with all the chicken knowledge I am learning
    ..He is taken back a little by my enthusiasm for the chickens since I got my favorite breeds and my very own..When he started raising chickens I wanted no part in it ..I told him they are his an I will not take care of them in no shape form or fashion...That lasted a whole 2 days..After that I was hooked...And I'm so very happy for it...I love not only my chickens but his also!! On top of the 3 goats we now have and the three rabbits also which one is going to give birth to I hope lotsa babies....Again thankyou everyone!!!!

    Yes as soon as I can..Have a friend who has Leghorns that aren't old enough to be sexed yet so waiting until he can find out...Was wanting one sooner than that cause my girls just started laying like crazy and now it's gonna be quite sometime before I can get any fertile eggs. But I guess that's the life of having them I guess...But at least I know ones coming.
