    Hello All, I am a newbie to the Chicken World! My name is Xiomara, and in January I decided to buy 2 two month old Rhode Island red pullets and in february decided to get 28 one week old white leghorn chicks ( Brave or Crazy? ) . I live in Des Moines, Iowa. I am Married and have two children. I do not know what prompted me in to being a chicken momma? And now I have added to my flock, I have 20 cornish rock broilers, 10 more RIR, 10 barred rock, two "Giant" Cochin one white one Black and two wellsummers. And will definitely be adding to the collection. Buff orpingtons and Delawares are next on my list.

    Welcome to BYC and the poultry keeping obsession.

    You've definitely jumped right into the deep end with layers *and* meat birds - are you planning to process the broilers yourself?

    Thank You, I sure did. And yes I plan on processing them myself. And I also have a Broody banty hen with 12 eggs,3-5 days until we find out how many hatch, and I don't know what kind of Rooster well the name of it. I will post pics.

    G’Day from down under Xiomara [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
