    Hi everyone,

    I have loved chickens ever since I was little. In seventh grade I did a science project on hatching incubated eggs, even though I lived in L.A and in an apartment complex. I was successful and out of 12 eggs 10 hatched! Not bad for a seventh grader! I have always treasure my memory of hatching & raising those chicks so it only made sense to get a flock of my own as an adult. Last year after purchasing 10 acres, my family went out and got 8 red sex link pulleys. That’s all she write, now I’m a passionate chicken tender ( get it ). I’m branching out this year with some more variety in flock, especially since the fox enjoyed some chicken on me this winter . I have gotten some buff orpingtons, Cherry Eggers, americaunas, Plymouth Rocks, brahmas, silver spangled Hamburg’s and golden phoenix’s im very excited to see all these chicklets grow. I’m very hopeful to get some Delaware blue hens as well. I’m excited to be a part of this community and look forward to sharing information, experiences and stories.

    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.

    Including your general location on your profile 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. These might be of particular interest to you:
    Topic of the Week - Integrating Chicks into an Adult Flock
    Topic of the Week - Keeping the Flock Safe from Predators

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