    I'm looking forward to reading all the posts and learning more about chickens. I started with a dozen about three years ago and I've got 5 left, I lost a few to neighborhood dogs and a few to other predators. A friend will be dropping off 7 more adult layers soon and my 16 new chicks will be here May 19! I'm so excited! I can't believe how much joy I get from those chickens....

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

    I am sorry to hear of your losses [​IMG]

    Have you integrated adult chickens and chicks before? If not, these threads might be helpful:

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1164542/topic-of-the-week-adding-new-chickens-to-the-flock

    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.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    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]

    Thank you! I've never integrated chicks with adults. Only adults with other adults. I'm adding an additional hen house to the one I have to get them acquainted before I actually put them together. I'll definitely check out those pages you sent. I can never have enough info!!!
