    Good morning all,

    Finally had to break down and join because I couldn't find a thread that answered my question.

    New to the chicken game. Wanted a few birds just for eggs, and after a week was drawing plans for the new coop and looking to expand the flock...

    The wife is super impressed.

    Great information from a great membership. Not sure that I will add much, but i'll take all I can get.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Many of us were lurkers before signing up. Sounds like the chicken math is getting a grip in you!! What breed/s do you keep? Wishing you the very best of luck with expanding your flock on the future.

    Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    Thank you for the welcome. The chicken math is in full multiplication mode, no doubt about it.

    Currently, I have just two birds, a leghorn and ancona. Originally there was also a campine and a lakenvelder, but some unwanted subtraction put me down to two.

    Looking very hard at what the additions will be and have it narrowed down to a few different breeds on the short list. I like the idea of a mixed flock. When I had horses and hogs growing up I always liked to have a mix to experiment with and find what I really liked, the chickens are proving to the be the same, if not much, much worse.

    Thanks again.
