    Hi everyone, finally decided to check you all out after seeing you on facebook, i am also on BYC, but this forum is wonderful! I live in eastern oklahoma, and when hubby retired(Navy 23 years) i went back to school got my art degree, then graduated and hubby suggested we get a few chickens, after all ten acres and no livestock- well that was 4 years ago and the addiction at current count is 22 in the layer flock, EEs and a mix of breeds, Bantams 9, silkies, seramas, faverolles - yep... seriously addicted

    Thank you all for the welcome! The format on byc gives this old computer problems- so here i am to enable anyone thinking of chickens!LOL! That avatar is my Joe, a serama, I lost him a couple weeks ago, he was my buddy! I've lost quite a few this year and its never easy- I love anything with feathers...:)

    Welcome Artsy. Chickenland is much better than BYC. I visit them all and this place is still the best (with the exception of a few meanies.)

    Yeah, I've been on BYC, and didn't like it, and I am a member of another flock also, but not so much lately. I have 4 homepages that open up, and this and FB are 2 of them! LOVE IT, and I haven't met the meanies yet!! Unless I'm one, and I don't think so...:p
