    Hello.

    My name is Mija and I have a chicken addiction. I haven't always been this way; I used to be normal (ish). I have always wanted to have a small farm, but I haven't been able to turn that corner yet. So, as for now, I have my little back yard "farm.

    I recently bought a house, and we moved in in January. We have put a lot of work into our back yard and our chicken area, and were excited to get some new flock mates. We currently have 3 hens, 2 Buff Orpingtons and 1 Ameraucana (Maggie, Mabel, and Geraldine).

    Just this past weekend we added three more ladies (hopefully)... 1 Cuckoo Bluebar, 1 French Black Copper Marans, and 1 cream Legbar. Of course, we are hoping our picker was right, but I'm not going to dwell too much.

    I also have 2 kids, my daughter is 2.5 (She says "GOOOOOD MORRRRNING Chickens!" every day), and my son who is 14 and a broody teenager.

    Matt and I have been together almost 6 years now. We also have 2 dogs Huck the Puggle, and Henry the Boston.

    Anyhow. If you want to learn more about me, I do have a random blog. Since I just bought a house I haven't talked much about the ladies on there yet, but in time, I fear they will take over.

    Nice to meet you.

    Hi Mija and welcome to BYC -great to have you join us. Your garden looks great - I had plans not dissimilar to what you have there, but monkeys either eat or destroy almost any and everything where i live [​IMG].

    Glad to hear that you are not immune from chicken maths (are any of us?) and congrats on your new additions.

    Joining your state thread may be useful as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - just type the name of your state in the search box.

    All the best
