    Hi everyone. Looks like a great site! We are starting a new flock of 7 laying hens and soon building a new coop. Used to raise them in the country in NC years back and been dreaming of having some in the city here in SC, Well that day is finally here! So we will be gleaning lots of great info on here and asking a lot of questions in the future I'm sure.

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

    Congratulations on becoming a chicken parent again.

    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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Thank you! Yes, hopefully all girls, lol. We have an assorted flock this time with now 8 chicks, our backyard limit. We have one of each breed of,..AMERICANA, BARRED ROCK, BLACK AUSTRALORP, RHODE ISLAND RED, GOLDEN COMET, WHITE LEGHORN, SILVER LACE WYANDOT, and a BUFF ORPINGTON I was told, but one could possibly be a BLACK SEX LINK, I'm not so sharp on identifying these chicks. I was told by our Feed and Seed they gave me one of each breed they had but I went back for number eight and noticed they actually have 9 breeds. We shall see lol. What do you have?
