    Just to start - Thanks for this great Community.

    I am a first time suburban chicken owner, dipping my toes in with 3 female chicks. One black sexlink, one cuckoo maran and a barred rock.

    Came across BYC while doing research and it is an amazing resource.

    Prior to adding the chicks my flock consisted of: Husband, Mother, 16 yr old, 3 yr old, four cats and an Australian cattle dog. I must have been looking for something to do with all my spare time....

    Hope to meet you all in the forums

    G’Day from down under Quik1th :frow Welcome and Congratulations! :clap

    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.

    Please do check out the Topic of the Week discussions Pork Pie mentioned. I have found these to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock or other critters, 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 ;)

    Liked the first three so much we added 2 EE’s. This must be the chicken math everyone talks about right?

    Thanks again for being such a great resource.
