I have no experience with chickens. I wanted fresh eggs and I now have 8 spoiled rotten baby chicks. I'll take all the advice I can get

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around the run.
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

Hi and welcome to BYC - great to have you onboard. Getting your first egg from one of your flock is always a great day - gotta love this chicken keeping malarky!

 

All the best

Welcome to BYC.  How old are your chicks, and what breeds did you get?  Some  breeds lay sooner than others.

x2 on the Learning Center, there are some very helpful articles there. You can always use the Search feature to find information...it's in the upper left corner, under the logo.
