    I have been raising chickens for 6 months now from chicks, I have red rangers and have had success until recently, when a few problems began.

    I am trying to find a way to post on the forum with the huge amount of questions I have, but it keeps sending me back to here to introduce myself.
    Hopefully after i introduce myself I will be able to post on the other forums, I look forward to getting some much needed help.

    You kept getting sent back here because you have to be a member to post questions. Otherwise you can only lurk and read posts but not participate. Now that you are official, [​IMG] you can participate in BYC activities like most contests etc.

    Thank you everyone, this forum will take some getting used to. I did try the advice given and was not seeing anything that said start a new thread like I do on this page, I was able to post this one because it came in a direct link for steps i needed to take to join in my e-mail. I am thinking I was missing a step along the way making it so I could not post a new thread yet, I have not tried today yet.

    Unfortunately I was looking for advice on a sick Hen and she passed away last night after a couple days of being ill. :(

    I currently have 5 chickens, 4 hens and a rooster. I also have 14 eggs incubating with a hatch date of the 21st.

    Sorry for not replying until now, on top of a sick chicken I was dealing with a 5 year old with tooth aches which has be exhausted and slow to reply.

    Hello, and welcome to Backyard chickens! I am sorry you lost your hen. :hugs If you are still having trouble, I would try to contact a moderator, or post in this link: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forums/threads/add/forumId/3. I got it to where all you need to do is type your problem and hit SUBMIT down in the lower right hand corner of the screen. Good luck!
