    Hello everyone! I'm brand new to BYC and to chicken keeping as well. We just bought a small farm, and our first project is raising chickens for eggs. We have 20 4 week old chicks currently in our spare room. I am really enjoying them, and very eager to learn as much as possible.

    Alright [​IMG] great to have you joining the BYC flock [​IMG]



    BYC has a learning center available to all [​IMG]




    Funny I use an old house on the property here as a chicken barn and it works out great [​IMG]

    They were sold to me as buff orpingtons, silver laced wyandottes, gold laced wyandottes, ameraucanas, and marans. I'm attempting to post a thread on identifying gender/breed so I can differentiate but still learning the whole posting thing. Hoping for at least 12 pullets and will keep 1-2 cockerels.
