Hello everyone

I found your site on google because when we moved to a lifestyle block January 2016 we knew nothing about the chickens we inherited. Since then I've read so many threads and have learned so much from all of you. Thank you as your knowledge is appreciated so thought I might as well join up.
We live in New Zealand and have 40 something chickens including 19 orpington chicks and a rooster and 2 barnevelder roosters. We started with 9 and the bug has caught me.

Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. It's good to hear that BYC has been a help to you in the past, and hopefully it will continue that way.

You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - https://www.backyardchickens.com/articles/category/learning-center.11/ and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

Each week, various topics are discussed, which can also be a great resource - https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/topic-of-the-week-thread-archive

All the best
