    Hi all,
    I started my chicken adventures about 3 years ago. They have definitely been a grand addition to our lives. My beginner flock were 3 one year old Sex Links that eventually were quite tasty in the stew pot. I have been hooked ever since! We now have 2 Buff Orphington hens, 2 RIR hens, 1 White Rock hen and a Buff Orphington Roo. Currently 2 hens are sitting on clutches due to hatch in the next week. One has 7, the other has 12. I can't wait for the little ones. Here are 5 of my 6. (The Roo was a rescue that had severe frost bite on his comb and has since lost his spiky crown.)

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Love your of and how nice of you to rescue your roo. Good luck with your broody hens, nothing quite like seeing them raised naturally.

    Wishing you the very best of luck for the future. Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow
