    Hi All! I'm a aspiring chicken mama. Working on hubbs to ok our first flock. Though I will be a first time chicken owner (not without countless questions I'm sure!) I am not new to birds ownership and care. We recently lost our beloved Elenora Cockatoo to PTFE poisioning. I am hoping for a flock of 4-6 hens, though I imagine we'll get closer to 8 (chicken math you know..)

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Sorry to here about the loss of Elenora :hugs
    The learning centre is a great place to start for your new chicken journey. Lots of articles on keeping your birds safe from predators, housing, feeding and keeping them healthy. Here is the link https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Wishing you the very best of luck, I am sure you will thoroughly enjoy it. You are so right the chicken math does take over how my flock grew I just don't know!
    Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined us.

    I'm sorry that you lost your Cockatoo! I've never kept a caged bird like a Cockatoo before, but have always thought them to be beautiful and intelligent.

    I am sorry you lost your cockatoo, I am not familiar with that type of poisoning. Glad you joined the BYC flock.
