    Welcome to the chicken world AND to BYC!

    Chickens are just so rewarding and worthwhile that I feel it is appropriate for doctors to write prescriptions for them. "Please excuse Leslie from work today, she needs to spend time with her chickens."

    What a grand world it would be...*sigh*

    Nestle is a Rhode Island Red and I am not too sure on Hershy. My husbands friend at work have them to us. I have had them for about a month now and they have settled in rather nicely. They already chatter when they see me. Especially if I have black oil sunflower seeds.[​IMG]

    G’Day from down under candybarqueen [​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.

    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]

    I used to be a "candy bar queen," Dove & Mars brands make some very good ones also. As you can tell by my avatar, I have switched to an addiction to ice cream[​IMG]

    Welcome to the Backyard chickens flock. Hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
