    Hi, just joined today but have been coming to this page for a few months now so decided it was time to join. I live in maine and currently have 39 chickens and a couple turkeys, along with rabbits, dogs and cats haha I homeschool my 3 kids (1st grade, kindergarten, and preschool) and integrate all of the animal's care into their homeschool so has been fun. For chickens we have had them for 5 years now, buff orpingtons, auracanas, australorps, black stars and our newest members are silkie bantams. Also currently have the 2 Bourbon Red hens and are focusing on expanding them this year. Looking forward to continuing to expand our knowledge here and hopefully help out when we can.

    G’Day from down under vergeL [​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]
