    I purchased my first bunch of chicks in early October. I have 2 black sex-link, 2 black australorps, and 3 silver laced wyandottes. I want these girls for their eggs and as part of my organic ecosystem. It is warm here in the Sacramento CA area, so I just moved them outside after completing a chicken run for them (around the hen house).

    I have a big yard and eventually will have them free range when I am home to watch. I hope they will help me with the weeds and all the bugs!

    I had chickens growing up but it has been 45 years since I have had chickens so I am sure there is much to learn. Looking forward to learning from this group and through others' experience.

    Welcome to the obsessive, anxiety riddled hobby we call chicken keeping! Its worth every moment and given the opportunity, they'll teach you a little about yourself.

    Welcome to Backyard Chickens!:welcomeWe are glad you joined the flock! BYC is a helpful site providing all of the information you need to know about poultry! There is always space for more members on the BYC roost!:highfive: Be aware of predators when permitting free-range chickens. They are more easily seized by raptors, coyotes etc. Just giving you a previous notice. Hope you enjoy it here as much as we all do!
