    Hi my name is stephanie, and my hubby is Jamie! We are proud parents to a 3 year old who recently requested chickens. We've both grown up w chickens so it was a no brained. We thought what we got was 4 hens when ordered. However what we got was 2 hens a rooster and a meat chicken then added another hen and a duck. We are excited to expand with more chickens and ducks and looking forward to backyard chickens advice and everything else it has to offer. Thank you for this awesome site!!

    Welcome to BYC, Stephanie! Glad you decided to join our flock. Just beware of "chicken math." Very few BYC members are immune to it. :eek:) Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Other than the meat chicken, which I would assume is a Cornish cross, what kind of chickens do you have?

    Michael oshay I am unsure. The duck is a mallard. The others I'll post pics of. Someone has a rooster on here spitting image of our CD. White stars or something is my guess. What do I do with a meat chicken though? She seams to b attempting to lay. I'm finding light tan eggs once every week or so I think maybe hers?
