    Hello,

    I just joined the site after doing a Google search for a pecking problem.. BYC was one of the first few listings and after taking a look I thought it was a good group to join.

    I have 7 chickens at present. I did start with 12 but 5 of them died. I have Buff Orpingtons and Partridge Rocks. All the chickens that died were Partridge Rocks and the only remaining Partridge Rock is a rooster.

    I live in Southwest PA near WV and MD.

    Hi and welcome to BYC

    If you check out the Learning Centre, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things chicken.

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread). In fact, the search box should become your best friend [​IMG] Lastly but by no means least, 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
