Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! That's quite a break from chicken keeping but I'm sure you will enjoy having the agian. Here is a great section from the learning centre on raising chicks ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-and-raising-chicks
Lots of great articles that will really help you with getting started agian.

Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

Welcome to Backyard chickens.  The Learning Center makes a great refresher course, and the various forums can handle most of your other questions.  I always think it is good to join your state thread and ask the locals  what breeds are best,  what type of coop stands up to weather extremes,  where the feed stores are etc. etc.  Best to ask people who know and deal with it every day.

 

Just put state name in search box and it will pop up for you.

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
