Hello, I am new to BYC and to chicken raising. despite being new to this, I have already found a deep affection for our flock. We began with 6 and now have 12, but will probably go back down to 10 as 3 are roosters. I had a feeling that they were early on but had to wait for them to get bigger. Our flock: 3 Buff Minorca 3 Buff Laced Polish 4 Ameraucana 2 RIR I am looking forward to learning from everyone here at BYC.
