    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] You'll find a load of great info in the Learning Center here. General tips, well, keep your coop clean to help minimise disease, deworm your flock every 6 months, dust the chickens and the coop for mites every couple of weeks, mix unfiltered ACV (apple cider vinegar) with their drink water for a week every 4 weeks (4-5 tablespoons to a gallon water) to keep them healthy and happy, don't underestimate predators! Make sure your coop and run is secure and have fun with your flock.
