Good evening, everyone!
I'm new to chickens. I got 18 chooks about 1 month ago from a neighbour who was moving. The ladies are all about 1-2 years, and laying pretty well (10-12/day), considering the weather (chilly) and the fact that daylight is still relatively short. Ive never had chickens before and getting them was kind of last minute... So BIG learning curve!!

They are all hens and just a rough barn yard mix. Some are brown, some are black, some are black and brown, some are black and white. I don't have a rooster as of yet, but once the snow has melted, and thier free range area becomes bigger, I will be looking for a suitable protector.

I found BYC when I was constantly looking up information about the lovely ladies... It seems this is the "go to" place for information and ideas.

We are living an a small acreage about an hour from any town. We have an apiary as well, and 2 dogs and 2 cats. Hopefully, we will be expanding our flock in the Summer and adding ducks and turkeys. I am thinking of adding rabbits, too, but it all depends on how much I get done during the spring and summer.

I never thought that I would be interested in having chickens, but they are amazing!

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 and/or other critters, 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 ;)

Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

You might want to also visit the Canadian Thread and pop in and say hello.
