Thanks for adding me, I have really enjoyed the Facebook group and saw the link for this site on there.

I had chickens when I was younger and my parents have chickens for eggs then this spring I got some chicks for my three children ages 3 almost 4 year old daughter and my boys 5 and 1 year old. We all enjoyed them very much

We only have one black silkie roster, one buff orpington and 4 rr we have been getting 3 to 4 eggs a day mostly 4 eggs a every other day a huge egg.

I plan to get more chickens this spring or if I can find half grown ones then maybe sooner. Would love to get into the cool colored egg layers and the all black chickens a friend from church just for a pair they are very expensive though.

Welcome to Backyard Chickens! We are glad you joined the flock!:welcome BYC is a helpful site providing all the information you need to know about poultry! There is always space for more members on the BYC roost!:highfive: Only certain chicken breeds make good pets and silkies are one of them. Some breeds tend to be nervous or flighty. Great choice and I love your picture!:thumbsup Hope you enjoy it here as much as we all do!

Hello Elisabeth and welcome to BYC! :frowGlad you joined.

When it comes time to look for additions to your flock, check out Craigslist.

I found 3 beautiful 11 month old leghorns that needed to be rehomed because the owners are keeping chickens within city limits and the neighbors complained. I am getting them for free because the woman was so thrilled with my set up she just wanted them to go to a good home... she wanted me to take all 15!!! Gulp! That's too much math at once and I can't solve equations that big any more! They come home tomorrow!!!
