    Hi everyone! First I would like to say thank you for the last year or so while I have been a lurker on this website, learning from all the wonderful topics discussed here and dipping my toes in the water of having my own backyard flock. You have been a fount of knowledge to me while plotting and scheming and waiting-- and waiting--... and waiting, but now I've taken the plunge!

    Yesterday I became the proud new mom to a baker's dozen of banty babies. I can barely take my eyes off of these unbelievably tiny birds and my heart just swells to hear them peep and skitter about.

    Also, I never thought I'd be the kind of person to wake up an hour before my alarm just to sneak a peek and make doubly sure everyone was breathing. [​IMG] Hopefully, 13 is my lucky number, I will be overjoyed if they all survive. Though I have to wonder how many roo's I'll have to rehome in a few short months (city ordinance)...

    G’Day from down under TattooedChicks [​IMG] Welcome!

    Your little ones are adorable! Thank You for sharing the video.

    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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
