I'm a new member, and I'm also new to forums; so please, be patient with me.
I forgot, I'm also new to chickens!!!
Greetings from Kansas, Fun Chicken, and ! Great to have you in our community! Don't worry - we were all newcomers once. I think you'll find BYC members friendly and helpful. As a newbie to chickens may I suggest you spend some time perusing the articles in the Learning Center here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center It will give you a lot of knowledge in no time! And if you'd like to chat with local chicken folks, here is a link to the Michigan thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/697050/michigan-thread-all-are-welcome
Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC!
Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. As @redsoxs says, we were all new to this game once, and you will find that the overwhelming majority of members are uber friendly and understanding. It's worth remembering that even the most experienced members learn something new now and again, so please feel free to post any questions that you may have.
Hello there, and welcome to Backyard Chickens! I hope you enjoy it here as much as I have!
Welcome to BYC, I hope you enjoy your stay.
Thanks everyone, I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions for you all! For starters,I would like to tell you a little about myself and maybe I'll be able to learn a little about each of you too. I'm married to a wonderful man and have three great kids (well, they're around thirty but to me they'll always be my kids) who are still at home due to the fact that they are all handicapped. I'm a caregiver for them, but only part-time because of health issues. Our family loves animals. We have a dog, a bunny, a fish, 2 medium size parrots, 8 little parrots and now 23 chickens. We also used to have a cat that was part bobcat, but he died. My baby chicks are 5 weeks as of yesterday (monday) and they are definitely too big for the brooder. I'm having a friend build me a coop under my back porch, but it probably won't be ready for at least 2 more weeks since he only works on it Saturdays. Should I start taking them out during the day? I'm scared that something will eat them! But I don't want them to freeze the first night they have to sleep in the coop. I'm now lowering the temp of the heat lamp and will soon shut it off.
