    Hello BYC

    I'm new on here but I've been viewing BYC for awhile now.... great info and its so great to go on here for all my questions/concerns as a newbie!!!

    I've got a small flock 13 hens (3x Cochins, 2x Orpington's, 2x Ameraucana's, 3xRhode Island Reds, 3x silkies) and 1 silkie rooster.

    So much fun !! But not with out some heartbreak in the begining and some very hard truth about what CAN happen even with all the right precautions and all the research prior to jumping in to this very wonderful world of chickens !!


    cheers, looking forward to learning more about my BYC

    HI there, [​IMG] and welcome to BYC!

    Yes, there is always a negative to so much positive in life, including chickens! But they are worth it as they give so much back to you that it makes it easier to weather out the tough stuff.

    Great to have you aboard and enjoy BYC!
