    Chicken newbie, but wanted chickens for a long time. Started with 2 RIR's, and 2 Buffs(3 months old) a week ago. And yesterday got 5 more RIR's(5 weeks old). Am I crazy?? Glad this forum is here. Glad BYC is here!

    Greetings from Kansas, phlaxx, and:welcome. Pleased you joined us! Well, if you're crazy you are in good company with a lot of us on BYC! :yiipchick. Most of start with a few, add a few more, expand the coop, add a few more, try some new breeds, branch into ducks or turkeys or guineas....there's no real cure. It's called chicken math and once you have it, you're hooked for life! Best of luck to you! :weee

    [​IMG] so glad you have joined us and congrats on getting your own flock.

    IMO those who don't want chickens are the crazy ones [​IMG]

    RIR sick? Help. She's crouched low and acting like she wants to throw up. Opening her mouth like yawning?!
