    I've had backyard layers for 8-9 years now. I love my chickens and their eggs. Last spring I got some straight run chickens and last fall I got some yummy free range chicken meat. [​IMG] I have ordered chickens from McMurray hatchery - coming in two weeks. I picked some that are supposed to be good mothers. I am hoping to raise my own "chicken crop" (for replacement layers, freezer and perhaps sell a few) each year. Looking forward to getting information from those here more experienced in setting up the facilities for breeding chickens. (I'll be posting a question or two shortly:D)

    Welcome to BYC! I started with chickens over the summer and the people of BYC have been great. Please visit my BYC Page for my blog links that you may find informative or amusing.

    I'm pretty new to the group, too. I'm originally from Warren, MI, but now live in sunny southwest Florida with my family and my flock. Enjoy!
