    10 years ago I had chickens in rural Iowa on 5 acres. I really enjoyed it. Life changes took me off rural land to the city of Des Moines. My husband, 2 kids & I live in a 100 year old house just 40 blocks from downtown.
    Last weekend we got four chicks. The kids & even hubby are excited about this endeavor. We got a Lavender Orpington named Lady Gray, an Americauna named Venti and two what I thought were Marans named Becky & Baby. Now after some research I think they are Barnevelders.
    We don't have any other furry pets, but we have fish.
    I came upon this group while researching and thought it would be good to join. Hello everyone!

    G’Day from down under FerreiraFamily :frow Welcome and Congratulations! :clap

    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.

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)
