    Hi everybody! I've been wanting chickens for just about ever and finally decided to get some. Searched online getting tips for raising chicks and found BYC, this place has been a lifesaver! I bought 15 black australorps a week ago and sadly one of my girls has died but my others are going strong! Thinking about getting more, they're so addictive! All advice, tips, and hollers are welcome! :)
    Also more about me: I'm a proud mommy of an almost 2 year old boy and me and him currently have 1 dog, 1 pig, 3 rabbits, 2 horses, plus the new addition of 14 chicks.
