    Hello! I'm new here...So excited to be joining! I live on 10 acres farm with 16 chickens and 10 ducks all pasture raised! I love gardening and homesteading type things...And of course my birds...We raise for eggs and meat but they are treated like family until the end [​IMG] I'm not a coddler tho...I have three sons and husband and we love love love country living and are quite old school when it comes to farming and raising animals. I'm looking forward to meeting new people like myself who enjoy raising birds but aren't judgy or condescending and definantly not caddy..I can't find a FB group that's not like that so got my fingers crossed [​IMG]

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

    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.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    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]

    Welcome from a fellow newbie!

    This is such a welcoming place to be. Have a great time exploring. Chances are real good that we will probably bump into each other poking around :)
