    My wife and I decided we wanted to add a few chickens to our family. Still a work in progress but couldn't have done it without all of the help and ideas on BYC. We have 8 lavender orpington chicks in our dog kennel in our den waiting for the chicken coop to be built. Will add pictures to the coop forum once construction begins.

    G’Day from down under jascksonad [​IMG] Welcome!

    Congratulations on your new feathered family members and good luck with the build.

    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]
