    Hi All... we're excited to be a part of this community and to be the parents of a new flock in Monroe, WI where they just passed an ordinance allowing BYCs! As far as I know we have the first little flock in Monroe. Here's a pic taken just as we got them home. (We're a bit concerned now, as I've posted in the Chicken Behavior's forums) It's a mixed breed little flock with Buff Orpington (in the back) then left to right, an Easter Egger, Silver Laced Wyandotte and Speckled Sussex.
    Cheers,
    John[​IMG]

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! Congratulations on your new birds :clap I just popped and checked your other post out. They are likely staying in because of the move and everything being new to them. I'm sure once they have settled they will become more confident and start venturing out. You have some lovely breeds there and I love colours of them in your pic.

    Wishing you the very best of luck with them in the future. Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow
