Hi, my name is Sarah and I'm really happy to be joining the flock of BYC. I am a companion to sixteen chickens: Bantams: Black Wyandotte Blue Quail D'anver Quail D'anver Self Blue D'anver Spangled OEG Brown Red OEG (rooster and two hens) Black Breasted Red OEG (rooster and hen) Golden Duckwing OEG (rooster and two hens) Large Fowl: Speckled Sussex (three hens) I show most of them at APA shows and at my local 4-H fair. I live in the suburbs so most people think I'm insane to own chickens, I disagree. I've snooped on BYC for some time before joining, but I'm really glad I've finally committed. Everyone seems so nice and so concerned about their flocks' well-being. It's great to finally find people who care as much about our feathered friends as I do. You'll most likely find me snooping in the Emergencies/ Illness Forum as I hope to become an exotic and/ or farm animal vet (still undecided as to the specifics). As the title of my post says, I'm really excited to be a part of such a wonderful Forum and look forward to all of the suggestions everyone has to offer as to the best quality of care for my favorite avian friends.
