My name is Katie. I'm new to chickens purchased our first 6 golden buffs, although they may be red comets, April 10 th so they are 8 weeks now. Then 2 weeks later I had to get 4 more 😄. Blue Americuana, 2 splash orpingtons, one was supposed to be a lavendar orpington, and a mystery chick. I will be posting a picture of her to get some ideas of what she is. Those 4 are 6 weeks now. I love watching them grow and change into beautiful adults. Also how curious they are about most things. Can't wait to have our first eggs to show my daughter and teach them responsibility by having them help care for them.
I do love to garden whichhh may be a challenge now 😆 but I plan on setting them up with their own garden to maybe deter them a little.
I am married with 2 girls, 3 & 1 yrs old. We have no other pets just our chickies. I am a mail carrier for USPS working 6 days a week.
I am hoping to learn alot from this forum and excited to be apart of BYC.

Good morning Katie! I’m pretty new to this too. I had a friend asked me to hatch chicks for her and now I have seven chickens LOL. I’ve got silkies, Frizzled silkies and two Favarelles. I’m trying to rehome three of the roosters out of that seven. I’m looking for some more to keep going maybe some olive Eggers or lavender Orpington . My chicks are almost 8 weeks old and my kids are 23, 18, 15 and 11. Thanks for making all those deliveries!
