    Hi everyone!

    I’ve been creeping this site for a while and finally decided to join.

    We are an accidental chicken family after DS fell in love with one of his classroom chickens and lo and behold, they needed a new home at the end of the year.

    We researched and discussed and decided as a family to take them on and here we are!

    It’s a small flock that we have (only 2) as our city tolerates chickens but only so much. One of our birds has started crowing, which is not cool as Roos are a no-go. Neither bird is laying eggs so I can’t even bribe neighbors with fresh eggs!

    So, we’re trying to make it work as best as we can!

    Hi! Glad that you decided to join us.

    Most likely you won't see an egg until a bird is about 6 months old, although that varies with breed.

    Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
    Sorry to hear you ended up with a cockerel. Are you looking for another pullet to replace him with so your other chicken isn't alone?
