    Hi, I'm new to this chicken raising deal...my husband wanted them...I have a fear of things that fly and my grandparents had MEAN chickens growing up...so I was going to have nothing to do with them...well, about 10 weeks ago I got 4 Rhode Island reds and 4 ISA browns...I love them!!! So much I have 12 more little peeps that we will be adding shortly to our big coop...

    AH, I'm guessing you got chicks. They are so adorable and small they are a perfect introduction to folks who have fears about adults. This way you are with them as they grow up.

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

    Chickens sure do have a knack at attaching themselves to our heart strings and they each have their own little chickenality.

    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.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    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]
