    We just got our first chickens the end of April this year. Started with eight chicks and ended up with four hens and four roosters. Gave the roosters away. Went and got four Barred Rock hens and a rooster to go along with our four Leghorns. Never would have guessed that they would be so entertaining.

    G’Day from down under woodbootcher17 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Yep, their individual chickenalities are entertaining and most days they give us a reason to smile or chuckle.

    I hope you enjoy BYC; not only is it overflowing with lots of 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 about chickens, turkeys, duck, quail, Peas and pretty much any other feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
