Hello! Thanks for all your advice

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

I have been reading tons of stuff on this site for a month before finally getting our first 3 pullets this week. Finally joined so I can ask questions and hopefully have my own helpful advice after a while!

 

For the most part the new babies are settling in well!

 

1 Plymouth Rock "Pepper", 1 Rhode Island Red "Ginger", and 1 Black Australorp "Sydney"

Pepper is the smallest of the group but already has decided that she is the boss! Lots of great "Chicken TV" already. :yiipchick

Welcome to BYC

Joining in on the fun is so much more fun than lurking.

 

Enjoy your pullets - I never get tired of Chicken TV

Hey there @mizz9 and I would like to welcome you by saying :welcome!

I am happy you joined us here on our wonderful forum and I hope yo continue to be a member here. I have some questions about your flock and if you have any time I would appreciate it if you could answer them...

1. How old are your pullets?

2. Have they laid any eggs yet?

 

I was wondering because when you used the term pullet which is a young hen I wasntt sure whether they were laying or not. I also have some links that I give to people most are common and some are unique based on your intro and what you may need help or experience in...

The last link is just in case you wanna share pics and stories of your chickens to the public so we can get to know you and your flock...

I wish you and your new flock the best of luck and I hope you enjoy our forum!

Justin :thumbsup

They are 5 weeks old. Still chick-like. Got a little while to wait for the eggs!

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
