    Hi All, I'm just new to this group and to raising chickens. I'm the new proud owner of

    4 Happily laying, scratching & behaving normal (besides the pecking each other) Rescue hens
    4 confident Plymouth Rocks pullets
    2 Blue Araucanas pullets. Can't wait for the blue eggs
    2 Orpingtons pullets. 1 blue & 1 splash. Gorgeous birds

    Love just sitting in their run watching their personalities while they busy about their business. Have had to seperate my hens from the pullets & was thinking about running them together when the pullets are older as they are getting bullied.

    After 2 wks in their coop, I am going to let them free range on our 13 acre property through the day & hoping they will naturally come back to their coop before sun down. I'm from NZ & we don't have predators here other than prey birds and stoats (haven't seen a stoat yet though).

    Anyway, looking forward to meeting you all & soak up your expertise!

    Over n out :)

    Greetings, rararanch, and [​IMG]! Great to have you in our community! Sounds like a beautiful flock you are building. I'll trade you your stoats for my coyotes, opossums, raccoons, and bobcats! [​IMG] Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC!

    Hello and welcome to BYC. After a couple of weeks, your birds will know where "home" is, and return just before dusk.

    All the best

    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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
