    Howdy! I have worked with animals my whole life and career, but these are my "gasp" FIRST chickens!! Actually they are supposed to be for my daughter, but I am equally excited about them, and also excited to find BYC and other chicken enthusiasts!! Thanks for so much great reading material!!
    Our 8 new Silkie girls (hopefully) that arrived this week from mypetchicken dot com in wonderful health!! Unfortunately it seems as if new BYC members cannot post photos [​IMG] Anyone know when the link/pic posting ban gets lifted??

    Awwwww Thanks guyz [​IMG] Nice to meet ya'll!!!
    We just moved back to TX from South Africa a few weeks ago, and are leasing a little farm for now. Thought chickens would be good for the kiddo, and we don't want to commit to much else until we know our next step.... We move a lot, Africa and back and forth to USA, so it's an interesting but complicated life!! Hubby and I are involved in conservation work.... if you want to know more you can read some of my slightly outdated blog "the giraffe whisperer dot com".... ya'll will probably get a kick out of it, most folks do!!

    Despite all of our close work with wild and exotic animals, my daughter is very cautious/smart when it comes to bigger animals, and these chicks are fantastic because she can handle them and not worry about anything (don't worry she is gentle and always supervised). I showed rabbits in 4H when I was in middle school, and although I am from city-folk stock, I always knew I was a country girl at heart [​IMG] I'm hoping maybe she wants to show chickens in a year or two (she is 3), but we have no idea where we will be.... very likely we'll be back in Africa in 2012!
