    Hello y'all! The wife and I just purchased 2x Buff orphingtons, 2x Laced Wyandotte, 1x buff mix w/Cochin, and 1 jersey giant. We're from Alabama and look forward to joining the community of chicken owners. We have initially only wanted 4x chickens however have become addicted and keep wanting more. [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]. Take care!

    Greetings from Kansas, Eric, and :welcome! Happy you joined us! That phenomenon you described about always wanting more chickens is known as Chicken Math. It's a common affliction many on BYC suffer! :D If you would like to chat with fellow Bama chicken folks, locate your state thread in this link https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you
    And if you're new to the chicken game you might like visit the Learning Center here https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center It is packed with useful articles about all aspects of chicken keeping. Best wishes and thanks for joining! :)

    We started with 4 chickens years ago. Now we typically have between 60 and 90 at any given time of the year, we just love chickens!
