    Hello Everyone!
    Fairly new to the chicken world, my next door neighbor got me hooked almost one year ago. Went with her on a trip to our local feed store and picked up 2 BR, 3 Buffs and 2 EE. One week later we added a White Chinese goose to the group. Just recently acquired an EE Rooster and looking forward to chicks!
    Have Cream legbar eggs in incubator due to hatch March 1st
    [​IMG], Black Copper Marans and Olive Eggers are on order. Did I say I'm hooked [​IMG]
    Looking forward to learning all I can!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Sounds like you have been very busy in your first year of chicken keeping!! Good luck with your eggs in the incubator. Hatching and raising your own chicks is a fantastic experience, something I enjoy very much. The learning centre is a great place to start, here is the link https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/

    Be sure to ask any questions you may have, everyone here to help and very friendly. Hope you enjoy BYC, I am sure you will :frow

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. Chickens are very addicting, and very few members are immune to "chicken math." :eek:) Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your hatch.
