    Hello all,

    Okay, so I started out with Six 1 week old chicks a month ago, unknown breed and sex. Than a friend gave me Four 1 year old Easter Eggers. To make a long story short I now have Eight 6 month old Rhode Island Reds, Eight 7 month old Bantum Cochin. We had Ten but 2 turned out to be Roosters... a friend of my son's put them in his yard on tick patrol!
    I am setting 15 Bantum eggs in the Incubator in the morning, a friend of mine wants the chicks, when they are hatched. I just want to hatch some in the new bator my sister gave me tonight.

    I live in New Hamshire . We have 10 Labradors. I raise, breed and train Retrievers for Therapy and service work. We also send a lot of pups out as feet warmers and couch potatos!

    I am married , and my husband and kids love the Chickens as much as I do. My husband and I have even put our chairs in the run and have coffee with "girls" in the evening.

    We have 4 children ages 14 to 25 and a wonderful grandaughter who is 5 and just loves the Chickens and of course the dogs and pups.

    I am very excited to be part BYC

    hello Wendi and :welcome
    Sounds like that "chicken math" is setting in already, you've got a great-sounding flock there!
    Don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have, and enjoy the site. :D
