    Hi, just introducing myself. I finally made my dream come true this past spring and became the mama to 6 black sex-linked chicks. They're now full grown hens who started laying eggs in August. Looking forward to participating on this board and learning a lot. This is my first time ever raising any kind of bird.

    Welcome to BYC! I also live in MA, over on cape cod. Glad to see another Massachusetts member! Black sex links are AMAZING egg layers, 300+ eggs per year. Great choice in breeds. Chickens are a great hobby, and a wonderful pet.... I hope BYC answers any and all questions you have and that you post some pics of your little girls SOON! :)
