    My name is Hillary & I am a chicken addict.
    It has gotten to the point where my co-workers have designated Wednesday as chicken day saying that I cannot use the 'C' word any other...on the other days I call them poultry. ;)
    I have newly registered but must admit that I am a long time BYC snooper. My Dad, my flock, my parrot & my pug live in lovely Muskoka Ontario. It all started when my father saw an add for a chicken coop & half jokingly suggested we get it. Well, needless to say, that tiny coop now houses newcomers or acts as grow-out housing now that I've basically put an outdoor addition onto the house just for the feather butts. I started with a freebie standard Buff Orpington (Helen) & some mystery bantams. Helen remains my only standard size & I now find myself with bantam Silver Laced Wyandottes, Araucana (crele & BBR), Silkies (partridge & black) & a surprisingly mixed bunch of offspring from the 'mystery bantams'.
    I look forward to regaling myself of the knowledge, support & fellowship of other addicts.

    [​IMG] Welcome from a fellow chicken addict. I'm sure folks I know get tired of my chicken stories. But doesn't bother me.

    So glad you joined us.

    Welcome to BYC, Hillary. Glad you decided to join our flock. A lot of us were lurkers before joining. We are all chicken addicts here, and very few BYC members are immune to "chicken math." :eek:) Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
