    Hi everyone,
    My name is BJ and I live in Paso Robles CA. Currently we have 6 chickens: 2 Welsummer, 2 Moran, 1 Silver Wyandotte, 1 Golden Sex Link. They are all 2 years old and great layers. I will be getting 6 new chicks this week. We also have 3 dogs & 2 cats. I enjoy organic gardening, horseback riding, fly fishing, photography, reading, writing, traveling, and camping. Looking forward to being a part of this (chicken) community in order to be a better steward to our flock.

    G’Day from down under BJ :frow Welcome!

    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.

    I note you mention you are in Paso Robles CA, but if you include your general location on your profile, this 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 Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

    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. This one might be of particular interest to you:
    Topic of the Week - Integrating Chicks into an Adult Flock

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock 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 ;)
