New Chicken Parent!


In the Brooder
Mar 29, 2018
Hello everyone! My name is Karinne and I'm from South Florida. My family and I are new chicken parents and it seems that my hubby and I are more excited about this than our kids are. We acquired our 2 mature Speckled Sussex, Thelma & Louise, from a friend's farm after my husband decided he wanted organic eggs. They have acclimated to backyard life and are now laying. We are looking to expand our flock, as I would like to experience raising a chick to maturity. I have a 120g saltwater fish tank that I maintain and love! It has been my hobby for over 10 years now. We also have a dog, Tux, which we love! I have always loved animals!

I am glad to be here!

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.

BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. These two might be of particular interest to you:
Topic of the Week - Integrating Chicks into an Adult Flock
Topic of the Week - Adding New Chickens to the Flock

If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock and/or other critters, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.
