Hello all I'm new to the whole chicken thing but I'm looking forward to not buying eggs anymore.

Welcome to Backyard Chickens.  Since you are new,  I think the best use of your time will be perusing the "Learning Center," above.  It will answer questions you don't even know you have yet.

Hi and welcome to BYC - I'd suggest posting your question on the emergencies / disease / injuries and cures section - i am sure some with help you out.

 

In the meantime, If you check out the Learning Centre, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things chicken. 

 
 
Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (just type your state in the search box). In fact, the search box should become your best friend  Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC,
 
All the best

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-
