Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided join our flock. I'm a chicken person myself, but I have to admit that ducklings are the ultimate in cute. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
Hi Alex nice to meet you. Welcome to the Backyard chickens flock.
I lived in Chicago the first 22 years of my life - had no idea they allowed chickens, unless that is a fairly new thing. I don't think the old neighbors in Westlawn would have approved. They poisoned my dog- vet was able to save him. Moved out 45 years ago and NEVER looked back.
Thanks so much for the welcome everyone
@NorthFLChick I've got 2 barred Plymouth rocks, a welsummer, austrolorp, leghorn, Easter egger, a sweet little houdan, a few barnyard mixs, and my adorable little buff silkie
they're all pullets what kind of chickens do you have?
@drumstick diva I live more on the outskirts of Chicago many of my neighbors have backyard flocks too so nobody really complains
how ever my closest neighbors sound a lot like your old ones they also tried to kill my dog
they tried to feed him meat with crushed glass in it thankfully I saw it before my dog did. seems like very few people in Chicago like dogs
Welcome to BYC and the coop! There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around BYC.
