I'm new to BYC, but have been lurking for about a year researching as much as I could before ordering my first chicks. This site has been super helpful, and I'm looking forward to interacting with other chicken enthusiasts. My flock consists of some really great chickies... i just love them! We have one Welsummer hen, a Colombian Wyandotte, a blue Cochin, a Buff Orpington, 3 beautiful white Silkies (which might be Roos), and the sweetest most awesome and loving little "Mystery chick" which I believe is a bantam Rhode Island Red. Although we are not builders, this is the coop we built for our chickies. Daisy is in the picture. She is our field lab, and helped raise the chicks. She takes real good care of her girls -They even nap together. The chicks all arrived July first 2014 from Murry McMurry, and are doing fantastic!
