Hi, I am a first time chicken owner. In fact until now I have always been scared of chickens.. silly I know. This summer I decided to conquer my fear. I have 4 hens 3 are almost 6 months old and my one layer is of unknown age as we rescued her. She was a stray who was in horrible condition when we found her but as friendly as a puppy. So far everyone is health and happy and since I got them as chicks I think I'm over my fear... mostly smile.png

Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. My wife is terrified of chickens - that's why I have a flock :P

 

You'll find lots of info  in the Learning Centre - http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads. 

 

You may wish to consider joining your state thread  as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you

 

All the best

I think that's the way most of us end up as members - almost half a million of us!

G’Day from down under tcorwin   Welcome!

 

I hope you enjoy BYC.  There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.  Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends ;)

:welcome

 

You aren't the only one that started off as being nervous around chickens, I was that way when I was a kid. But chickens have a way of growing on you and before you know it, you'll have 100's of pictures of yours and telling everyone that listens about their latest antics. Without even planning on it, you'll be known as the Crazy Chicken Lady among your friends :lol:

 

Make yourself at home here, feel free to ask questions, join in on the discussions or contests and have fun!
