New To the Flock

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all. This is my first flock and honestly, first experience with a forum. But I know that it takes a village so here I am. My husband, 5yo daughter and I reside in beautiful Northern Arizona on almost 2 acres. After much much research we decided to forgo grocery eggs and sustain our own! We decided on a rainbow flock of; 2 wayondotees, 2 leg horns, 1 australorp and 1 EE. I'm not sure that the feed store was correct on the estimate of the chicks age so I'm having a hard time planning ahead. Also. I'm pretty sure that one of the "guaranteed to be hens leg horns" is a Cockrell. ūüėí Despite my research I would like some real time advice on, what now? What are some tips I can be given that I can't read about? Any advice on the breeds?

My best advice to you would be to check out the learning centre, here is the link ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

Wishing you the very best of luck. Be sure to ask any questions, there really is a section for everything in the forum.

Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat frow.gif

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
