    Hello community!

    I have recently "adopted" my boyfriend's chcickebs that he bought for his daughter. When I first met the chickens I was afraid of them and did not like them much at all. Fast forward to a year later, I have bought 5 young hens to add to the flock and call them all my own. I check on them and mess with them 2-3 times a day even though they do not live at my house! Too much?

    I have been on Pinterest and read tons of blogs and the best information comes from here! I have also burnt my family and friends out on talking about my sweet poultry and wanted a new place to chat about their behavior, their trials and tribulations and the joys of interacting with them!

    I have many a question, but will leave my introduction here and start browsing! So great to join you all!

    All my love for chickens,
    Cass

    G’Day from down under Cass [​IMG] Welcome!

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    I 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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
