    Hello All!
    I'm new to having chickens. My 4 cute ladies are 11 weeks old. They are all sexed linked and vary in color from whitish/brown to black. It has been a lot of fun for my family so far. One of our ladies is extremely friendly and loves to follow us around and even likes when we scratch her chest. I just wanted to say hello from Utah!


    Thanks!

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Yes, chickens sure to bond up quick with you, especially when you start them as chicks! My babies are total lap hounds and follow me around like drooling puppies waiting for either goodies or a nice soft lap to fill their love tanks on.

    Please make yourself at home here and ask any questions you may have.

    Enjoy all your poultry adventures and we do welcome you to our flock! :)
