    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Many of us were lurkers before joining, me included! I'm sure you will do a great job of rearing some in your new suburban home. What breed/s do you have?

    Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy your time here on BYC :frow

    I am actually in the process of taking pictures of my girls to go get help identifying! We ordered the Rare Breed Assortment from My Pet Chicken and I am at a loss of what some of them are. [​IMG] I know for sure that I have 2 silver laced polish and most likely 3 Easter Eggers (one has a very different head color so I'm not sure about her). The rest I have a few guesses on but I need help. [​IMG]

    Easter eggers come in just about every color under the sun and some gorgeous combinations. Welcome to BYC
