    Well I haven't had chickens scenes I was growing up, new house and property now that will allow me to get back into
    it so hear we are.
    First off great site with a lot of info and ideas.
    I started off by adopting 4 from a friend 2 rosters and 2 hens( not sure what they are but they lay a med size light brown egg, that was the bug.
    now we have 12 chicks that we picked up from the local feed store 3 Bard Rocks, 3 Buff Orpington , 3 Ameraucana, & 3 Marans. I thinking it will be a good starting point.
    I'm working on the run and the coop while there are in the brooder they are about 3 weeks at this point and doing well, both ideas have come from this site.
    Thanks again for the site, info and ideas.

    G’Day from down under Hankster [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you and your flock all the best.

    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.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, 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 [​IMG]
