    Hi, my name is Meriem and I live in Tupelo, MS. I owned chickens many years ago and loved them. They were my pets with benefits! The kids and I enjoyed going out every day to gather eggs. My kids are grown and gone, now so thought I would get some chicks to raise. I found some Silkie and Frizzle chicks locally and they will be hatching in about 2 weeks. I have my brooder ready and I can't wait![​IMG]

    How "egg-citing"! Bet you can't wait (I know I sure can't wait for spring to come so I can get my ducklings). Welcome to the BYC flock!

    Greetings from Kansas, Meriem, and [​IMG]! Great to have you aboard! Your hometown has me going to youtube and searching out Tupelo Honey by Vann Morrison. Best of luck to you and your birds!

    You know Tupelo is the birthplace of Elvis Presley! I was born in Topeka. I was an air force brat. That's how we ended up in Mississippi. Thanks all for the warm welcomes!
