    I am new to chicken raising. I got at 6 weeks old. I have 2 Barred Rocks and 2 Buff Orpingtons. So far everything is going great all though I think they may be a bit scared of me :-/ I am working on it. I'm happy to be part of this group. The girls are my first step toward being a more self sufficient human leading a better more sustainable lifestyle! I look forward to getting to know everyone. <3

    Hi and [​IMG] - glad that you have joined us. If you just hang out with your chicks (maybe read or listen to music) and offer the occasional treat they should be increasingly calm in your presence.

    The Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced chicken keepers - loads of info on anything chicken. https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Joining your state thread will put you in contact with other BYC members in your area, which can be very helpful.

    (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread)

    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
