    I thought I would introduce ourself. Long time lurker and first time poster with an account. I have spent hours on your forums looking through the wealth of information provided here and decided we wanted layers.

    This is our first year with chickens so we are learning the ropes via trial by fire. It has been a good experience for the family so far. We bought the chicks when they were a week old and have been tending to them ever since. They are currently in a brood box in the garage, but hopefully (weather permitting) I will finish our coop this week and move them out in to the pasture. We live on an acre with about half of it fenced with grass. Once my new status wears off I will post up pictures etc.

    We have 11 Birds

    3 Ameracaunas
    2 Black Australorps
    2 Austra Whites
    2 Buckeyes
    2 Golden Sex links

    Welcome to BYC! You have come to the coolest place on the internet for chicken knowledge.

    I started with chickens last summer and the people of BYC have been great. This year I have tried hatching and buying chicks for even more chickeny joy. Please visit my BYC Page for my blog links that you may find informative or amusing.
