    I have 4 RIR,4 gold laced wyandotts, 4 australorps, 4buff Os 4 EE and 2 barred rock and 2 welsemers. We are looking for another 6-12 to add to the flock. We want nice looking breeds that lay well. Around here if you dont lay you dont stay.

    Hi Trevor and welcome to BYC.

    If you check out the Learning Centre, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things chicken - even if you are an experienced chicken keeper.

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread). In fact, the search box should become your best friend [​IMG] Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best
    CT
