Hi everyone! I've been searching the BYC forums for the past 2+ years whenever I have questions and I figured it was about time to join! I'll tell you briefly about myself... I have been raising chickens since September, 2013. Right now I have 7 hens, 2 male turkeys, and one female turkey. My chickens are: 1 - Australorp (since Sep 2013) 1 - Ameraucana/Easter Egger (since December 2013) 1 - Black sex link (since 2014) 1 - NH Red (since 2014) 1 - Barred Rock (since 2014) 2 - Speckled Sussex (since spring 2015) Turkeys: 1 - Male BBB (Broad Breasted Bronze) (born May 2015) 2 - one of each male & female - Royal Palm (born July 2015) I found out about BYC by doing what else... Google searches when I had questions! In addition to my backyard flock, I also have 3 dwarf Pygmy goats, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 1 rabbit, and some tropical fish. I love to spend time at my home and with my pets! I'm excited to join and am looking forward to sharing with all of you!
