    I've been lurking and reading extensively here of late and figured it was time i signed up. Hello!

    Later this week I'll have thirty two sweet, peeping, day old chicks arriving from ideal hatchery. I'm getting a mix of silkies, buff orpington, and Easter eggers to start a new home flock after several years of suburban living where I couldn't keep livestock.

    Ten years ago I hobby farmed chickens, turkey, ducks, and even lamb. But I'm rusty now, and the friends who helped back then have all moved away. So I figured connecting with other critter crazed folks like myself is a healthy alternative to driving my husband and coworkers completely mad.

    I'm looking forward to getting to know the byc community. See u all around!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. A lot of us were lurkers before joining and all of us here at BYC have OCD (Obsessive Chicken Disorder). :eek:) If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
