    Hey everyone! My boyfriend and I began with our backyard chickens this past August when they were just a day old! Now the ladies are about 5 months old and our White Leghorn has started laying! It's really exciting. We have 8 chickens total - 3 Rhode Islands, 2 Buff Orpingtons, 2 Welsummers, and 1 White Leghorn. I can't wait for the rest of our ladies to start producing as well :)

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Congratulations! It's always so exciting getting that first egg. You have some very good layers in your flock. White Leghorns are egg laying machines, and I love the chocolate eggs of the Welsummers. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in getting many, many more eggs.
