    Hi all! A dream is materializing as I move this spring to an old family farm where I can have my garden and start a flock of chickens! I am on here to learn about raising chickens, and I am particularly interested in a mixed flock to produce multicolored eggs for sale. Hoping to feel comfortable enough and informed enough about this by April 1st for the chickbordering deadline at my feed store!

    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]
