    My wife and I are in northern Illinois and we currently have 15 chickens and 2 chicks that our broody just hatched (2 weeks old). We have searched around the forums a lot but finally decided to join today. 2 of our Hens are "retired" layers but we haven't decided what to do with them yet. We were hoping that there was someone with land in the relative area that took retired birds and let them free range and let nature be nature but we haven't found anything like that so they just eat for now. We look forward to getting to know the community and talking through various subjects.

    G’Day from down under jnckids [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    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.

    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 [​IMG]
