    I have been raising chickens for about 4 or 5 years, my wife about 50+. They are such an entertaining species. We have about 22 adult chickens and 6 new "whittes". We love to watch them grow. The only downside is tryin to keep them out of the gardens in the spring and summer. We have had a lot problems with foxes killing our flocks over the year but we have finally got rid of the main threat and now our biggest threat are cars and opossums. We free range because they prefer that to the "lot" life. Also I hate clipping their wings it pissed them off and effected their egg production and our family member are always needing eggs.

    G'Day from down under SaraSue.... :frowWelcome!

    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.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.
