    Hi All!

    New to the community here and new to the whole world that is, of raising chickens! We are looking to start with 4 chicks for the purpose of laying eggs and for some entertainment while we are gardening on the farm. I am excited to learn and grow and thought this would be a great place to start! We are getting our chicks on March 20th, 2015.

    Anyways, just wanted to say Hello!!!

    Probably some Easter Egger Ameraucanas to start but haven't made our final decision as to what kind(s) we will be getting for sure.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined us.

    Good luck with your future chicks! I would recommend Easter Eggers for sure. My Easter Egger has been a very good layer and quite sweet.[​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. I have seven Easter Eggers in my flock and they are good layers, and my granddaughter's (pictured in my avatar) favorite hens. She loves their colored eggs. If sheer egg production is important to you, you might also want to consider Black Sex Links (Black Stars), which are hardy and friendly, egg laying machines. I've raised them for years (along with dozens of other breeds and hybrids), and they have been my best layers, consistently churning out more than 300 eggs per hen per year. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Whatever breeds or hybrids you decide to get, good luck with your flock.
