    Hello! I'm new to BYC! I live in the Midwest and have 3 ameraucana hens. I had 3 ISA browns, but they were sadly taken by a bobcat just last week. I am hoping to expand my little flock next spring. I've had my chickens for about a year and half. At first I wasn't for having chickens, but my husband wanted them. Within an hour of having them I had them all named and it's safe to say I'm obsessed with them now! I will be on here a lot asking lots of questions and I hope I don't ask too many questions that have already been asked. I've learned a lot about raising chickens, but I'm excited and eager to learn more from here!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. I think you should post on the predator threads for advice on safeguarding your birds. Sad thing is EVERYTHING loves to eat chicken. Once they have an easy meal, they keep coming back until there aren't any more.
