    Hi everyone! So glad to have found you!! I am a brand new chicken parent!! I have started out with four layers:

    Gold laced Wyandotte, splash Wyandotte, golden comet, and Rhodebar

    I found this site through google (thank the good Lord!)

    We have recently moved to 12 acres and really wanted to add some charm....not to mention that I absolutely love all animals!!

    I have two doggies, and rat terrier mix and a Miniature Schnauzer. I don't have any human children, so my animals get all my attention and love!

    Looking forward to learning lots here and gladly welcome any advice!!

    Everyone have a great weekend!!

    Welcome to BYC! It's an amazing site I'm sure you'll love it here. It's certainly been helpful to me in the first rocky months that I had my first ducks, then chickens. We have six ducks, six chickens, six cats, two dogs, as well as three fostered ex barn kittens.
