    Hello there!

    I am new here. I reside in Arizona and I currently have 6 chickens. I know one is a buff orpington and one is a wyandotte and one is potentially a rhode island red...the others I don't know. We adopted them from our landlord. We are looking to add some others to our bunch this March! Thinking Ameracaunas. Trying to decide on bantam or standard.

    I am very excited to be a part of this group!

    Hi and welcome to BYC! The Learning Centre is a great place to start off as it has loads of info on anything chicken. Joining your state thread (just type your state in the search box) will also put you in contact with other BYC members in your area.

    Good luck with planning your flock additions!

    All the best

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! Sounds like you have some great plans for expanding your flock :D It happens to us all and often without you even realising it!! For your Unknown breeds you could post some pics in the what breed gender section. Here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this
