    Hi, I'm almost brand new, chicken mama born in 2/22/18. I wanted to start with 4, I now have 74. Rushing through life to build a big coop. I have one made for 6-8 chickens but needless to say I'm not good with math! I have a variety of breeds since tsc kept insisting I take cute little chicks for ten cents each. Thanks tsc! But I'm addicted, in love with them all from my rir to my little silkie. I'm disabled and live alone on a family farm so they definitely have brought joy and life to my house in the short time I've had them. I'll talk to anyone who will listen about them lol i also have two cats and a dog, sew, make jewelry, stained glass, and whatever else I can think of. Next idea is a garden for my chickens.

    It'll be great to meet y'all like minded people, share ideas and thank you in advance for sharing all your knowledge.

    G'Day from down under Sherri :frowWelcome and Congratulations! :clap

    You may be really bad at math but you sure do excel at chicken-math! ;) :gig

    I do 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.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock and/or other critters, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

    Hope TSC wasn't luring you into taking their extra male chicks for 10 cents each, I don't trust them.
