    Hello! I’m new to the community. I have ordered 4 chickens online and my chicks arrive the beginning of May. I’m so excited to join the community and learn the ins and outs of backyard chicken keeping.

    Welcome to BYC! You'll like it here. But don't expect any help in resisting chicken math.

    I’m getting an EE, Maran, Australorp, and Wydonette. I’ve wanted to do this for so long. Figured I’d start with a variety so my kids think egg collecting is an adventure

    G’Day from down under Rkchick :frow Welcome! Very exciting :clap

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. 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.

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. These in particular may be of interest to you at this stage:
    Topic/Question of the week - Brooding and supplementing heat for chicks
    Topic of the Week - Raising Chicks
    Topic of the Week - Getting Started, Keeping Chickens
    Topic of the Week - Keeping the Flock Safe from Predators

    This is also a good article: How Much Room Do Chickens Need

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock when they arrive, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)
