    Hi my name is Kaycey. I live in rural north central AZ. It gets pretty cold up here. Was 17 degrees when I let the chicken out of their houses this morning. We got our first 6 chickens in March this year, so have learnt a lot since then. Now we have 15. And I just put 7 eggs in the incubator Monday. Chicken math? So far we have 2 Speckled Sussex, 1 GLW, 2 SLW, 3 Cream Legbars, 1 CL mix, 1 Rainbow Special, (pullets) 1 CL cockerel, 1 cockerel of unknown breed and 2 eight week old black silkies. Are currently building another chicken house. I have lurked on this website and forum since before we got our chickens and decided it was time to take the plunge and become a member. Glad to be here.

    And am so jealous of that chicken math, really want to add another coop and expand with newbies next year.

    Welcome to BYC, Kaycey. Glad you decided to join our flock. A lot of us were lurkers before joining; all of us here at BYC have OCD (Obsessive Chicken Disorder) and very few of us are immune to "chicken math" so you are in good company. :eek:) If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
