    New to chickens allowed to have 4 hens where I am at (city). I have been reading things on BYC for the last 6 months or so before I got my birds, I am enjoying them even thought I had a little bad luck with getting 6 out of the 1st 7 as Roos but have my 4 hens and am learning as I go. Looking forward to more to come.

    Hello[​IMG]and Welcome to BYC!

    So glad you joined us! Getting lots of roosters always stinks :(. I would suggest checking out the learning center, if you haven't already, for helpful articles: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center . Also you could check our the Wisconsin thread to find fellow members in your area: Wisconsin "Cheeseheads" . If you have any questions feel free to ask! ( btw I love your avatar!)

    I'm not sure why you are getting that message, but here's a link on how to upload pics. At the end of the article is a link to a forum to report problems in pic uploads:

    Sometimes, it can take a short while before you are allowed to post pics. I think its a kind of "security" thing. Seeing as its Sunday, maybe the "powers that be" have yet to give permission to post pics on your account [​IMG]
