    Hi BYC Community,

    I am a mom of 6(2 are foster kids we are now in the adoption process for). When my husband deployed with the National Guard a few years ago, the kids and I studied about all kinds of flying creatures. My husband got excited about bees, and I got excited about chickens. So when he got back, we got two hives. Now its my turn! [​IMG]

    My kiddos, who have done a lot of reading on chickens, helped me pick out 3 Buff Orpingtons and 3 Isa Browns (chicks- from the TSC and was told that they are a few weeks old). I don't know a lot about the Isa Browns- but am so glad to find this website/community when I went online today. This is amazing! I am looking forward to learning a LOT. Starting with deciding on what kind of coop to build. Hubby is handy- but so are the kiddos so it will be a family venture most likely. Thank you in advance for all of the information! [​IMG]

    G’Day from down under TeamHatch [​IMG] Welcome!

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    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.

    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 [​IMG]
