    Hello, My name is Lisa and I live in VA.

    I got my day old hatchlings the end of March 2018. I have 7 pullets - 3 are Partridge Rock's, 1 - Blue Andalusian, 1 - Sicilian Buttercup, 1 - Exchequer Leghorn, and 1 - Lavender Orpington.

    I have really enjoyed raising them, I just enjoy seeing them be chickens. I let them free-range as much as I can but lately the hawks have been staying around - so they are confined more than I like. I really enjoy the fresh eggs and I cannot stand store bought ones anymore.

    I was born and raised on a farm but we never really raised chickens. We had a few game hens and roosters that were given to us, but the flock eventually died off. I still live on that 100 acre farm. We rent the majority of it to a neighbor that raises beef cattle and makes hay. I have been raising Jack Russell Terriers for 30 years and I am heavily involved in showing and judging them all over the country.

    I stumbled up on this site through google and it has been very helpful in the past so I decided to join so I can learn as much as I can. I do have an Associate's Degree in Animal Agriculture from VA Tech - Go Hokies!

    Hi Lisa and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us.

    This is a useful link of BYC guides to take a look at announcements-feedback-issues-guides.3 I’d suggest including your location using the guide in that link. You can use this link to contact members in your area - Find your State's thread.

    Welcome to Backyard Chickens. Tons of dog folks here at BYC, judges, handlers, field trial, agility, obedience, search & rescue, etc.

    My theory is someone who is very selective with dogs, carries that with them getting breeds of chicken.
