    Hi, I am Jillian from sunny California and I'm in my first year of raising chickens. I currently have three 9 month old's (Silver Laced Wyandotte, Buff Minorca, and Rhode Island Red) and a brand new 5 month old (Barred Rock). I am hoping to add a couple Easter Eggers to the mix next month as I have found someone who has 4 month old pullets and I think that will complete my flock this year! Up until last week I also had a white cochin that my neighbors dog got and she was by far my favorite personality:(

    I haven't ventured into supplementing light yet, so as of last October, I am only getting about 4 eggs a week from the Wyandotte. The Minorca went broody and has never started back up and the Rhode Island quit laying for the winter (at least I hope it is only winter)! In addition I have a Queensland Heeler, two cats, a husband and a 4 year old daughter, all of whom love the chickens:)

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. Easter Eggers are my granddaughter's (pictured in my avatar) favorite chickens. She loves their colored eggs. Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in getting those eggs.
